The whole halftime experiment on WWE Raw did not really work and not only it didn’t work to keep viewers glued to Raw, but viewers switched away en-masse from the second to the third hour. Raw on Monday drew 3,826,000 viewers, down 161,000 viewers from last week’s show.
Hour one did 3,900,000 viewers, followed by 3,949,000 in the second hour, and then down to 3,629,000 in the third and final hour.
Both the overall number and the third hour number were the worst numbers since the May 26 episode of the show which coincidentally enough was also the go-home show for another pay-per-view, Payback. (Ratings credit: PWInsider.com)
