WWE Raw Viewership Drops For Post-Survivor Series Episode

Near record low ratings.

This week's episode of Monday Night Raw featured a Seth Rollins heel turn, Rey Mysterio winning the United States Championship, and the return of Matt Hardy.

Despite this, the show only drew an average of 2.109 million viewers - down 0.9% from last week's go-home episode before Survivor Series, which drew 2.128 million. The audience was also down 11% from the same week in 2018, and recorded the second lowest non-holiday viewership in Raw's history.

Raw's inability to hold viewers' attention for 3 hours also continued. During the first hour the episode attracted 2.241 million, but by the final hour viewership slumped to 1.896 million. A drop of 15.4%.

The show did face tough competition in Monday Night Football on ESPN. The Los Angeles Rams hosted the Baltimore Ravens, a game which held playoff implications. The NFC champions have stuttered for much of this season, while the Ravens find themselves top in the AFC North, having won seven games in a row. Ultimately Monday Night Football drew 10.925 million viewers, and dominated in the important 18-49 Demographic. This will have drawn potential viewers away from Monday Night Raw.
