Well, if we puzzle a bit with the breakdown we see that the quarter where Vince and JR talk backstage had less viewers than the quarter where Punk and AJ talked.
Of course any rational person won't draw many conclusions based on either of those segments. Punk's didn't even last 1,5 minutes and Vince's was only about 2 minutes so neither was really long enough to have time to draw people in, or to be a significant part of their respective quarters.
Vince is of course the biggest attraction that was on Raw, both due to it's being him and because he's not been there in a while, but since Punk's segments pretty much always gain viewers it's just silly to say that Vince would have drawn the same amount with anyone.
