Last night’s episode of WWE Raw drew a 2.23 rating on USA Network among live and same-night DVR viewership. That is down from the 2.29 rating the week before, but slightly above the August average of 2.22 and the ten-week rolling average of 2.14. The 2017 average through this week is 2.13.

The first hour drew 3.384 million viewers, then it dropped in the second hour to 3.364 and then dropped again in the third to 3.163. Usually the second hour draws the most viewers. The first-to-third hour dropoff was typical, with 221,000 more in the first than the third; the yearly average is 232,000.

Keller’s Analysis: Since it’s not the day after Summerslam, but did feature Brock Lesnar and John Cena, the numbers are all pretty expected here. They are below the year-ago number of 2.38. That’s a different of 0.15. The average difference so far this year compared to so far last year is 0.30, so this week’s rating was closer than the average.
