This week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw garnered an average viewing audience of 3,457,667 viewers on the USA Network. That’s down an average of (-93,333 viewers) from the week prior. Below is how the show did each hour:

Hour one - 3,471,000 viewers
Hour two - 3,392,000 viewers
Hour three - 3,510,000 viewers
Average - 3,457,667 viewers

Viewership increased from hour two to hour three, which is atypical of viewing patterns in recent years. Usually the third hour is the lowest watched hour so it can be seen as a success that the show finished with more viewers than it started. However, I can’t help but point to decreasing viewership as a negative sign this close to Wrestlemania 32.
