WWE Raw Viewership Drops To Lowest Rating Since Early July
The show faced significant competition from live sports
The October 11 episode of WWE Raw saw the show drop to its lowest rating since early July, before the promotion returned to touring and live audiences.
The viewership in the crucial 18-49 demographic also took a major hit. The October 11 episode only drew a 0.42 in the key demo, down from 0.52 from last week's show - which was the advertised second night of the 2021 WWE Draft.
The total viewership and the demo rating is the worst WWE Monday Night Raw has registered since the July 5 episode, which was presented from the ThunderDome and aired a couple of weeks prior to the return to touring and fans in attendance.
It should be noted that Raw faced significant competition with the NFL, the NBA and MLB all presenting live games of football, basketball and baseball on other channels. Nonetheless, this week’s RAW drew the sixth-lowest audience in show history, including holiday episodes, and the fourth-lowest key demo rating in show history.
