Raw got crushed in the ratings this week as the two concurrent NFL games left an even bigger dent than last week. Raw did 1,593,000 viewers this week, down 116,000 viewers from last week and last week already had a 300,000+ viewership decrease. This was the lowest viewership since the July 4 episode.
The first hour drew 1,709,000 viewers, then decreased to 1,623,000 viewers in the second hour, and further down to 1,449,000 viewers in the third hour. The NFL did a combined viewership of nearly 21 million viewers across three stations and Monday also saw the premiere of many returning TV shows such as The Voice, Dancing With The Stars, NCIS, etc.
Raw was #5, #6, and #7 in the top 50 chart among the 18-49 demo with 0.46, 0.46, and 0.42 respectively for an average of 0.45, up 0.01 from last week. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
