This week’s Raw barely, just barely, beat last week’s ratings, getting only 2,915,000 viewers, up 4,000 viewers from the August 8 episode.
Hour one did 2,879,000 viewers, followed by an increase to 3,083,000 viewers in the second hour, before crashing down to 2,784,000 viewers in the third and final hour. This was the go-home show for SummerSlam for the red brand which does not spell good news.
Head to head with Raw, the Olympics did 20.8 million viewers at 8PM, 25.2 million viewers at 9PM, and 25.7 million viewers at 10PM. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
