RAW Rating & Social Media Score Drops, NXT Tapings News

Posted by Brad Davis May 16, 2012 9 Comments

- Monday’s RAW drew a 2.94 rating and averaged 4,408,000 viewers.  The show did hours of 2.91 and 2.97. This was the first time since February 13th that RAW dipped below 3.0 and the second lowest rating of the year (behind the January 9th show, which was up against the BCS National Title college football game). WWE was likely hoping for a higher rating heading in to their Over The Limit 2012 PPV.

– RAW’s Trendrr.tv social media score was also way down this week, down 36% from last week and down 39% compared to this year’s  average. RAW ranked #4 on cable on Monday night, behind the NBA Playoffs and “Basketball Wives” on VH1.

– This week’s episode of NXT is being taped tonight prior to the Smackdown tapings from Hershey, PA. WWE will tape next week’s show this Thursday from Full Sail University in Florida.

      This show was boring for just the overall quality of the show. The media drop on the other hand Michael Cole beat us to death with twitter feed all night.
