RAW Viewership Down Half A Million From Last Week

Posted by Brad Davis December 4, 2013 13 Comments

Viewership data is in for Monday’s episode of WWE RAW – and it’s bad news all around. RAW’s average audience was 3,541,000 – down almost half a million viewers from the previous week.

By comparison, the NFL’s Monday Night Football game on ESPN between the New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks did approximately 15.5 million viewers.

For the second consecutive week, RAW lost viewership every hour throughout the show. Here are the hourly numbers:

  • Hour 1: 3,616,000
  • Hour 2: 3,560,000
  • Hour 3: 3,447,000

The most-watched hour of this week’s show had fewer viewers than the least-watched hour of last week. That means RAW has lost viewers during each of the past 6 hours it was on the air. Here’s a chart of the past 2 weeks of RAW hourly viewership:


To find an episode of RAW that did such a low number, you have to go back to Christmas Eve 2012. Excluding holiday editions of RAW, this was the worst viewership since October 1, 2012.
