After last week’s episode, which drew one of the lowest numbers in history due to the widely viewed U.S. Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, as well as the NFL’s latest Monday Night Football game, Monday night’s RAW bounced back with an increase in viewership.
The Monday, October 3rd edition of RAW, which took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California and featured Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson as celebrity guest hosts, drew 2.797 million viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.
By comparison, last week’s RAW finished with 2.478 million viewers, meaning WWE enjoyed an increase in viewership by 13 percent this week for the show that features Sasha Banks defeating Charlotte to recapture the RAW Women’s Championship in the main event of the evening.
The hourly viewership breakdown for this week’s RAW is as follows:
Hour One: 2.877 million viewers
