I think of myself as a huge wrestling fan but even for me it was tough choice to choose Raw over the NCAA final game. I'm pretty sure many people had to choose the same and went with college hoops. With that in mind the rating is pretty awesome. And taken in mind the strong reception this episode received, it could easily be taken into next weeks Raw.
People love cliff-hangers and when they are left with more questions than answers after every Raw.

It a decent rating given the atrocious creative decisions that were made in the prior year. I hope WWE realizes that people need to be convince that they are not bullshitting anymore and things are going in the right direction. Personally the only thing that has me interested is Jericho/Punk and Brock/Cena, the rest I really dont care for.

Overrun should do a 4.0

Great rating, and even better that it was a good show. Now people will tune in more next week instead of being repulsed by a shit show.

Odd that there's no breakdown yet. Although if I had to guess, Q2 had a ~1 million drop from Q1; Q5 increased about ~300k from Q4 and the overrun increased about ~700k. I think that's about it.

Segment Breakdown
Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Quote:
Raw on 4/3 for the day after WrestleMania did a 3.42 rating and 5.02 million viewers. The number was up from most recent weeks and it did go against the NCAA basketball finals. But the Raw after Mania often goes against the NCAA finals and it was down 11% in both ratings and viewers from a 3.84 rating and 5.62 million viewers for the day after Mania show last year. It was the highest rated show on cable for the night. The NCAA finals with Kentucky vs. Kansas did a 12.29 rating and 20.87 million viewers, up from last yearís 11.70 rating and 20.06 million viewers.

The show did 70.1% male viewers, a higher than usual male skew.

In the segment-by-segment, the Rock promo opened at a 3.6, which for the first segment after Mania is nothing that special.

Santino Marella vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Jack Swagger lost 295,000 viewers, which is less than Iíd have thought.

Lord Tensai vs. Alex Riley stayed even, which to me is a big success since it was a TV squash match the type that people are scared causes people to tune out, plus it involved someone who most fans donít know.

C.M. Punk vs. Mark Henry gained 148,000 viewers which is again a poor top of the hour gain.

The Sheamus/Alberto Del Rio angle lost 297,000 viewers, which isnít too bad for that period in the show.

Cody Rhodes vs. Kofi Kingston stayed even.

Zack Ryder vs. The Miz lost 150,000 viewers.

And the final segment, with John Cena and Brock Lesnar, gained 1,036,000 viewers to a 3.9 overrun, one of the best gain segments of the past few months.

The number next week is going to be very interesting because if Lesnar is going to be a ratings draw for the short-term, next week will tell the story.

Seriosuly how many weeks in a row are they going to put in that report "which is a weak gain for that timeslot" for the 10 PM slot before they just accept that it prolly jsut is the new norm for that slot?

Outside of the one week where HHH/Taker/HBK stuff did an 800,000 gain at 10 PM that slot has gained only 150-300 people roughly every week for the last few months.

Lesnar bringing dem gains DURRR. Tensai staying even is a great sign for him. Rhodes/Kingston staying even is great too. Punk/Henry is a shitty 10pm gain but that's expected now unless it's Rock/Cena/HHH/Taker in there. People actually staying put and not leaving is probably the best news they can take from this, especially when those segments involved midcarders. If they can keep that up then they just might be able to turn those stagnant segments into gaining segments. Overrun drew a monster number which is always nice to see. Next week shall be mighty interesting. Everybody knows Rock is gone, Taker/HHH didn't turn up here so we all know they're gone too. It's all about Lesnar/Cena. I fully expect things to go up next week. I wonder if it will happen.

10 spot doesn't do well whenever there is a commercial in the middle of it. Cena/Henry with Rock didn't do so hot either a couple of weeks ago. It's just obvious promos do a lot better than matches when it comes to the 10 spot. But this week's 10 spot segment with Henry/Punk was only about 100k down from the opening segment with the Rock, which did a 3.6, so that's a good number honestly.

Last segment is impressive. Lesnar's shocking return is obviously the big reason why. Let's see how long the spark will last.
