The Dec. 12 episode of Monday Night Raw drew a 1.94 rating which was down from the 2.08 rating the week before. For a show built around two New Day tag title defense as they tried to make history, it’s a disappointing number.

The ten-weekly rolling average is now 2.03, The first two weeks of December have averaged a 2.01, below the November average of 2.07, but above August, September, and October. The fall average is 1.99.

Keller’s Analysis: The hourly numbers dropped, which is usual, but the drop-off from hour one to three was 297,000, compared to 357,000 the week before and compared to 320,000 first-to-third hour drop-off since the start of November. So there was perhaps some statistical evidence they  held the audience they had a little better than usual due to that hook.
