Monday Night Raw hit its lowest-ever rating this week, with only 1,526,000 viewers tuning in, down 210,000 viewers from the previous week. The night was dominated by the NFL with over 12 million watching the game on ESPN head-to-head with Raw.
The show started with 1,627,000 viewers in the first hour which was already low, then dropped to 1,512,000 viewers in the second hour, before closing the night with just 1,441,000 viewers for the third hour. These were all new low records for Raw.
Raw was #6, #10, and #12 in the top 50 cable chart, also down from its usual place and had 0.44, 0.41, and 0.38 ratings in the 18-49 demo. Interesting to note is that last week’s Dynamite had more in the 18-49 demo in each hour than Raw, something that never happened before. The show was #31 in overall viewership for the night on cable.
