This week’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw saw a big drop in viewership from last Monday’s episode.
According to Showbuzz Daily, the episode drew an average of 1.527 million viewers on the USA Network. This is down from the 1.736 million viewers a week ago.
As a result, this set a new record for all-time lowest viewership of the show. The previous record for the all-time lowest came in July with 1.561 million viewers.
It went up against week 14 of Monday Night Football that featured the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns that did 12.422 million viewers on ESPN. An interesting thing to note is last week's episode of AEW Dynamite outperformed Raw in the key 18-49 demographic. Raw did 0.49 in hour one, 0.44 in hours two and three while on the flip side, AEW did a 0.57 rating.
The 18-49 demos saw hour one had 0.44 then 0.41 in hour two, and 0.38 in hour three. Here is the hourly viewership breakdown:
Hour 1 (8 pm): 1.627 million – last week: 1.852
Hour 2 (9 pm): 1.512 million – last week: 1.775
Hour 3 (10 pm): 1.441 million – last week: 1.583
The episode featured Lana vs. Nia Jax, Sheamus vs. AJ Styles set for statement showdown, and The New Day & Jeff Hardy vs. The Hurt Business. This was the go-home edition of Raw for Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view event.
