This week’s edition of Raw did a strong 3.9 cable rating, a big jump from last week’s 3.5. This is the best rating for a normal 2-hour RAW since April 2, 2007 – the day after last year’s WrestleMania. Hourly ratings were 4.05 and 3.69. The show opened with a 4.1 rating for the first quarter hour, the highest rated quarter hour of the broadcasst by far. It appears that curiosity from the Royal Rumble and John Cena’s return helped the show grow almost half a ratings point better than last week’s 3.5.
