This week’s WWE RAW ratings and viewership information is in. The go-home show for this Sunday’s Extreme Rules PPV event drew 2.613 million viewers. Last week’s show drew 2.615 million viewers, so WWE held their audience during the Memorial Day holiday.
While the numbers stayed roughly the same from last week, these ratings figures continue to be thoroughly underwhelming. It wasn’t that long ago where an hour dropping below three million viewers was considered drastic, and now we are routinely seeing all three hours of the show fall far below three million viewers.
The hourly breakdown this week was as follows:
- First Hour: 2.689 million viewers (2.661 million viewers last week)
- Second Hour: 2.681 million viewers (2.759 million viewers last week)
- Third Hour: 2.468 million viewers (2.425 million viewers last week)
In terms of pure viewership, RAW was the most watched show on cable television Monday night. WWE certainly benefitted from their being no NBA playoffs game this week on cable. However, game one of the Stanley Cup did air versus RAW on NBC and drew 4.854 million viewers. When it comes to the all important 18-49 age group demographic, RAW was second for the night on cable behind Street Outlaws on the Discovery Channel.
