The WWE RAW ratings and viewership figures are in for the May 15th edition of the show, and the news is only a tiny bit better than last week’s 2017 low. Last night’s numbers are up slightly from last week’s taped show from London.
Last night’s episode of the flagship show, which featured Alexa Bliss and Bayley getting extreme and co-main event featuring Finn Balor getting beat clean by Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins facing Bray Wyatt, drew 2.751 million viewers. This is up 2% from last week’s 2.696 million viewers for the taped show from London.
- First Hour: 2.884 million viewers (2.827 million viewers last week)
- Second Hour: 2.724 million viewers (2.845 million viewers last week)
- Third Hour: 2.645 million viewers (2.417 million viewers last week)
Once again this week, no one hour of the show managed to break the 3 million viewer ceiling.
RAW was #5 on cable for the night in viewership, falling behind the NBA Playoff game on TNT, Inside The NBA, the NBA pre-show, and Rachel Maddow. RAW was #5 in the 18-49 demographic, falling the NBA game, Inside The NBA, Love & Hip-Hop and the NBA pre-game.
In the coveted 18-49 demographic, last night’s episode did a .97 cable rating. This is up slightly from last week’s .92 rating in the same demographic.
