The WWE RAW ratings and viewership figures are in for this week’s show, and Monday’s episode of WWE’s flagship brand wasn’t able to draw 3 million viewers for any hour of the show. This week’s show, which featured more build for next month’s TLC PPV, more teasing of a Shield reunion, an Intercontinental Title Match between The Miz and Roman Reigns, and more Cruiserweight Division drama between champion Enzo Amore and practically everyone else on the planet, drew 2.773 million viewers. This is down from last week’s 2.923 million viewers and it’s the lowest number for RAW since mid-June.
The loss of viewers this week isn’t surprising. There was no PPV to follow up on or do a final build for. Plus, very little was advertised for the show before it aired.
The hourly breakdown this week was as follows:
First Hour: 2.945 million viewers (3.121 million viewers last week)
Second Hour: 2.756 million viewers (3.081 million viewers last week)
Third Hour: 2.619 million viewers (2.568 million viewers last week)
RAW was #13 in viewership on cable for the night, falling behind NFL on ESPN, Hannity, Tucker Carlson, The Story, Special Report, Happening Now, America’s Newsroom, The Five, Fox News Tonight, America’s Newsroom, Fox & Friends, and Outnumbered (coverage of the Las Vegas shooting dominated the cable ratings on Monday night). RAW was #4 in the 18-49 demographic this week, falling behind the NFL, SportsCenter, and Love & Hip-Hop.
RAW garnered a .92 cable rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic this week. This is down from last week’s .98 rating in the same demographic.
