The WWE RAW ratings and viewership figures are in for the June 5th edition of the show, and WWE finally gets some good news after weeks of the flagship show getting near-record low ratings. Last night’s show, which featured all the fallout from Sunday’s Extreme Rules actually garnered a large increase in viewers.
Monday’s episode of RAW, which featured The Miz’s Intercontinental Title win celebration, Nia Jax facing off with RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, and a main event that saw Samoa Joe and Seth Rollins face off yet again, drew 2.994 million viewers. This is up 15% from last week’s 2.613 million viewers for the Extreme Rules go-home episode of the show, which was a new low for 2017 and one of the worst numbers for the show in history. As good as this news may be, however, this marks the sixth straight week that RAW has averaged below 3 million viewers, and the third hour of the show saw a huge drop in audience from the first hour.
The hourly breakdown this week was as follows:
- First Hour: 3.113 million viewers (2.689 million viewers last week)
- Second Hour: 3.110 million viewers (2.681 million viewers last week)
- Third Hour: 2.758 million viewers (2.468 million viewers last week)
RAW was #1 on cable for the night in viewership and #2 in the 18-49 demographic, falling behind Love & Hip-Hop. The show did a 1.04 cable rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is way up from .86 rating it did in the same demographic last week.
