WWE Raw got an expected TV Ratings bump the night after Money in the Bank with new WWE World champion Dean Ambrose.
WWE Raw TV Ratings Tracking
June 20: Monday’s Raw scored a 2.44 TV rating the night after Money in the Bank, rebounding 20 percent from last week’s historical low-point 2.03 rating.
Raw scored its highest rating since the second episode after WrestleMania when the April 11 Raw scored a 2.50 rating.
The big rebound can be seen in the key demographic, which improved to the highest ratings since the night after WrestleMania. Compared to last week’s dismal, year-low demos, Monday’s Raw improved by the following…
- Adults 18-49 increased by 31%
- Males 18-34 increased by 43%
- Males 18-49 increased by 40%
WWE was losing the younger m18-34 demo in recent weeks, drawing three straight weeks of year-lows, including a sub-1.0 rating last week.
– Raw’s three hours averaged 3.467 million viewers, up 17 percent (about 500,000 viewers) from last week’s show.
The show was steady throughout with strong interest for immediate MITB fall-out, even more second hour viewers, and only a minimal drop-off in the third hour.
- First Hour: 3.420 million viewers (most since post-Payback)
- Second Hour: 3.562 million viewers (most since April 11)
- Third Hour: 3.420 million viewers (most since April 11)
WWE placed the #1 contender match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in the main event of the third hour, creating a strong hook to avoid the huge drop-off in the final hour that has been happening routinely lately. To then actually draw the same number of viewers in the third hour as the first hour is a success.
