WWE Raw Overall Viewership Falls While 18-49 Demo Sees Slight Rise
A mixed week in the numbers
The December 13 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw reportedly saw a slight rise in the key demographics but overall audience fell once again.
According to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, Raw drew a total audience viewership of 1,573,000 for this week's episode, which is a decline from the 1,599,000 scored by WWE's flagship show last week.
In the crucial 18-49 demographic, Raw did at least see a rise up to a 0.39 rating, which equates to 504,000 viewers. This is up from the record low that Raw hit for the December 6 episode, a 0.35 (462,000 viewers), although it should still be noted that the 0.39 from this week is still tied as the second-ever lowest for the red brand.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer notes that Raw placed sixth in the US cable charts in 18-49 viewers, and 17th overall in regards to total viewers. This week's Raw was behind only NFL-related programming on ESPN, while in total viewers it beat everything except NFL-related programming and news programmes.
