Last night’s WWE Monday Night Raw on USA Network drew a 2.14 rating among live and same-night-DVR viewers, the lowest rating in four weeks and a notch below the year-ago rating of 2.20. It was well below the 2.65 rating two years ago this week.

The ten-week rolling average headed into this wee was 2.092 which included the surge for Raw 25 and post-Rumble editions, but also included the lower holiday ratings.

The drop from the first to the third hour was the lowest in over a month, with 368,000 fewer viewers in the third hour than the first. The first hour drew 3.161 million viewers and the third dropped to 2.793 million.

Keller’s Analysis: This is probably where the rating will settle until WrestleMania season really heats up or Ronda Rousey becomes more of a factor in the programming.
