This week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw did an average viewing audience of 3,458,667 viewers on the USA Network. Below is how the show did each hour:
Hour one - 3,174,000 viewers
Hour two - 3,476,000 viewers
Hour three - 3,726,000 viewers
This was the lowest average viewing audience for Raw for all of 2014. A good sign — and an opposite trend from what we usually see — is that the broadcast gained 552,000 viewers from hour one to hour three.
As for the possible culprit of where the audience was, college football games on ESPN drew 4,896,000 viewers at 6 PM EST and 5,758,000 viewers on at 9 PM EST. There was no Monday Night Football as that series has concluded until next fall.
Raw was still Monday’s highest-rated non football program, scoring a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, which was even from last week.
