The first Monday Night Raw of 2016 with a main event of Roman Reigns vs Sheamus with Vince McMahon as the special referee drew an average of 3,575,000 viewers. The number is slightly up, around 40,000, from last week’s show.
Hour one did 3,707,000 viewers, followed by 3,516,000 in the second hour, and then 3,503,000 for the third hour and the main event. From the first hour to the third hour, the show lost 200,000 viewers. Raw had no Monday Night Football to go against so it was a bit of a disappointment with only a 40,000 viewer jump but this is the second week Raw is on the rise which is good news at least.
