This week’s WWE Raw produced an extremely mixed bag in the TV Ratings department…

WWE Raw TV Ratings Tracking

June 6: Monday’s Raw scored a 2.28 rating, rebounding from a 2.19 rating last week on the Memorial Day holiday.

The show was nearly identical to a 2.29 rating two weeks ago following the Extreme Rules PPV.

A big concern remains the key demographic ratings. Adults 18-49 was essentially even with last week and males 18-34 did not move from a basement-level, historical low-point last week.

However, males 18-49 rebounded one-tenth of a rating to essentially the same point as two weeks ago.

– Raw’s three hours averaged 3.254 million viewers, up less than one percent from 3.229 million viewers last week.

The mixed bag especially kicked in with the hourly viewership trend:

  • First Hour: 3.371 million viewers (four-week high)
  • Second Hour: 3.490 million viewers (two-month high)
  • Third Hour: 2.903 million viewers (16.8% decline from the second hour)

The third hour was the second-least-watched hour this year, just topping 2.894 million third hour viewers on May 16.

The final hour decline of 16.8 percent set a new record in the three-hour era. The previous record was a 16.3 percent decline on February 22 for the post-Fast Lane/Shane McMahon Return episode where the audience peaked in the first two hours, like this week’s Raw, then fell off the table in the third hour.
