The WWE RAW ratings and viewership figures are in for this week’s show, and Monday’s episode of WWE’s flagship brand saw their audience go up just a bit for the Survivor Series go-home episode. This week’s show, which featured The Shield back in action, the final hype for this Sunday’s Survivor Series, and a good portion of the show filled with recaps, drew 3.031 million viewers. This is up 6.7% from last week’s 2.841 million viewers. It’s also the first time RAW has topped the 3 million mark in months.
Not the best numbers for a big PPV go-home show, especially considering the hype for Roman Reigns’ return. Plus, there was a huge drop in viewers from hour one to hour three. It’s never a good thing when you have lost half a million viewers by the end of your show.
The hourly breakdown this week was as follows:
First Hour: 3.262 million viewers (2.935 million viewers last week)
Second Hour: 3.061 million viewers (2.959 million viewers last week)
Third Hour: 2.769 million viewers (2.630 million viewers last week)
RAW was #2 for the night in viewership, falling behind the NFL on ESPN. RAW was also #2 in the 18-49 demographic, behind the NFL. The show garnered a 1.06 cable rating for the night in the 18-49 demographic. This is up from last week when the RAW ratings averaged .95 in the same demographic.
