Not even a pay-per-view bump and an unsanctioned match managed to attract an audience for Raw as this week’s episode was the second least-watched episode in history, trailing only last week’s episode.
The show did an average of 1,628,000 viewers, up only 67,000 viewers from last week’s record-breaking episode.
Hour one started with 1,740,000 viewers, then dropped to 1,609,000 viewers in the second hour, before finishing off the night with just 1,535,000 viewers in the third hour.
Raw was #3, #6, and #7 in the top 50 cable chart among the 18-49 demographic and was #21 in overall viewership for the night on cable. Things will get ugly from next week as sports returns on television and that usually takes another chunk of the audience which if it does, will reach new scarier numbers for WWE during this pandemic.
