6/13 WWE Raw Quarter-Hour TV Ratings – Shield wins, did Cena-Styles save Raw from sub-2.0 rating?

By James Caldwell, PWTorch assistant editor


The quarter-hour TV Ratings for WWE Raw on Monday, June 13 indicate that The Shield Reunion promoting Money in the Bank at the top of the second hour was the most-watched segment of the show.

Raw fell way off for the remainder of the second hour against the NBA Finals. Then, if not for a bump at the top of the third hour for the John Cena-A.J. Styles contract signing, it’s likely Raw would have fallen below a 2.0 overall TV rating.

This is especially true looking at last week’s show, where WWE put a cold match at the top of the third hour and the segment only produced a 2.9 percent bump from the end of the second hour. This week, Cena-Styles produced a 19 percent bump from Q8 to bolster an otherwise dreadful third hour.

The combination of a soft first hour, dreadful Q6-Q8 after The Shield, and dreadful Q10-Q12 after Cena-Styles put Raw in position for an all-time low TV rating.

– Q5 (1.56): Shield Reunion. Dean Ambrose hosting Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins at the top of the second hour produced a 30 percent jump from Q4. However, the segment did not cross the 1.0 million viewers mark. No segment did this week in m18-49.

– Q3 (1.26): Randomville. There were two peaks in the third quarter-hour – the end of the four-team opening Tag match and backstage segments after a commercial.

– Q1 (1.25): WWE Tag Title opening segment. The audience to start the show set the tone for the rest of the night. The quarter-hour was down 21 percent from Q1 last week. And, the overall show was down 21 percent from last week.

– Q9 (1.22): Cena-Styles contract signing. The segment jumped 19 percent from Q8 at the top of the third hour to salvage the second-half of the show.
