This week’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw saw a slight drop in viewership from last Monday’s episode.
According to Showbuzz Daily, the episode drew an average of 1.689 million viewers on the USA Network. This is down from the 1.725 million viewers a week ago.
Although the company stacked the card, it fell to the NFL as ESPN aired two games – Steelers vs. Giants and Titans vs. Broncos – which did 10.762 million viewers and 7.697 million viewers. With such a slight drop, WWE should be happy about the ratings.
The 18-49 demos saw hour one had 0.52 then 0.52 in hour two, and 0.45 in hour three. Here is the hourly viewership breakdown:
Hour 1 (8 pm): 1.812 million – last week: 1.762
Hour 2 (9 pm): 1.734 million – last week: 1.800
Hour 3 (10 pm): 1.521 million – last week: 1.613
Some of the matches featured on the card included Raw Women’s Champion Asuka defending against Mickie James, Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro vs. The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) in a Champions vs. Champions non-title match, Dominik Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins in a Steel Cage Match, and Drew McIntyre vs. Keith Lee.
