As expected, Monday Night Raw got a serious beatdown in the ratings due to the college football game on ESPN, with Raw only getting 2,030,000 viewers, down 354,000 viewers from last week. This was the least-watched live Raw in modern-day history.
Hour one started with 2,218,000 viewers, followed by 2,059,000 viewers in the second hour, and then 1,814,000 viewers in the third and final hour. Just as a comparison, the football on ESPN did a gigantic 25 million viewers.
Raw was #9, #10, and #13 in the top 50 cable chart among the 18-49 demographic and #15 in overall viewership for the night on cable. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
