Last night’s WWE Monday Night Raw audience took a big tumble in the overnight viewership numbers that were released, drawing an average of 1.656 million viewers over the three hours – the least watched episode of the show since August 17, which was the last Raw that emanated from the Performance Center.
The 18-49 demographic rating also took a hit, dipping down to a 0.48 rating which would be one of the lowest in the series’ history.
Competition on the night was fairly solid with 11.7 million viewers tuning into Monday Night Football on ESPN, helping it generate a 3.54 rating in people, 18-49.
Raw finished 39th overall in total viewership but #9 in 18-49 and was only bested by sports and news shows, as it led the way in the entertainment category.
The big culprit in the low viewership looks to be hour three, which fell below 1.5 million and was the least watched hour in the history of Raw.
- * Hour 1 – 1.767 million
* Hour 2 – 1.747 million
* Hour 3 – 1.455 million
