Monday’s Raw drew a record non-holiday low in the show’s modern-day history, with only an average of 2,125,000 viewers tuning in. The low number was expected considering the NBA game five final took place head-to-head with the show. It was down 280,000 viewers from last week’s show.
Hour one started with 2,380,000 viewers, then dropped to 2,086,000 viewers in the second hour, and further down to 1,909,000 viewers for the third and final hour. The NBA game did a whopping 18.2 million viewers.
Raw was #1, #2, and #4 in the top 50 cable chart among the 18-49 demographic as the NBA game aired on ABC rather than TNT. Raw was #6 in overall viewership for the night on cable. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
