Ratings for the July 3rd live broadcast of Monday Night RAW took a bit of stumble compared to last week. The three-hour show averaged 2.839 million viewers, down from 2.977 million last week.
The first hour attracted an average 2.825 million viewers, which included Enzo Amore’s opening promo against Big Cass. The second hour was the most-watched hour of all cable programming on Monday with 2.912 million viewers. The third and final hour of RAW saw viewership decline to 2.780 million. The third hour featured Samoa Joe, Brock Lesnar, and later Braun Strowman.
In comparison to last week, the June 26 episode had a higher audience throughout the three hours. The first hour had 2,887 million, then increased to 3.092 million for the second hour, and finally a small drop to 2.951 million in the final hour. The main event of the June 26 episode was the Women’s Gauntlet match to determine the number one contender for Alexa Bliss’s RAW Women’s Championship.
In the coveted 18-49 age group demographic, RAW finished the night second on cable this week. It trailed Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.
While viewership did slip this week, do keep in mind it was during the July 4th holiday weekend.
