WWE Raw TV Ratings Tracking

July 11: WWE Raw scored a 2.28 TV rating, rebounding from the historically-low 1.87 rating on the Fourth of July.

The 2.28 is within the range of where Raw has been since WrestleMania, as the second quarter average was a 2.33 rating.

– Raw’s three hours averaged 3.170 million viewers.

  • First Hour: 3.042 million viewers (soft start)
  • Second Hour: 3.239 million viewers
  • Third Hour: 3.231 million viewers (down from 2H, but up from 1H)

Despite WWE saving the big McMahon Family Decision for the third hour, Raw could not break the streak of 17 consecutive weeks where third hour viewership declined from the second hour.

The last time Raw did not have a third hour decline was on March 14 when WWE loaded up the show all of the WrestleMania part-timers.

Overall, Raw was up 19.3 percent in TV viewership (about 510,000 viewers) compared to the Fourth.
