WWE Raw ratings down slightly, still #1 in demo

WWE Raw ratings down slightly, still #1 in demo

Monday Night Raw underperformed on a night with limited competition, but it still ranked No. 1 in all of television.

Raw got 0.59 in 18-49 to 1.75 million viewers for a show coming off the Money in the Bank PPV. Despite all the media reports about John Cena over the weekend, there was no increase from the show.

Raw was first on cable by a wide margin, with Hannity on Fox News coming in second with 3.56 million viewers and a 0.21. The top entertainment program on television after Raw was a Shark Week special about Great White Serial Killer sharks on Discovery with 636,000 viewers and a 0.21 in the 18-49 demographic.

Raw’s viewership is down seven percent from last week’s show, and six percent in the 18-49 demographic.

Since Raw faced the Home Run Derby a year ago this week, there was still a three percent drop in viewership but a six percent increase in 18-49. But when you factor in the lost homes, the real gains would have been a three percent increase in viewers and a 16 percent increase in 18-49.

With the exception of the Rey Mysterio & Zelina Vega match and Dominik Mysterio & Liv Morgan match, which saw the return of Rhea Ripley, the series had a normal ratings pattern, reaching 1.70 million viewers, much higher than the normal full-series rating.

The three hours were:

  • 20:00 1.85 million viewers
  • 21:00 1.78 million viewers
  • 22:00 1.62 million viewers
