This week’s “Superstar Shake-up” edition of WWE Monday Night Raw on USA Network drew a 2.47 rating, down from last week’s post-WrestleMania 2.72. It matches the average rating for April so far and beats the 2018 average so far of 2.27. The ten week rolling average headed into this week was a 2.26.
The viewership was steady throughout, with a small variance. The first hour drew 3.634 million viewers, this second hour 3.754 million, and the third hour 3.479 million. That’s a dropoff of just 155,000 from the first to the third hour, well below the 2018 average of 444,000. Viewers likely stuck around to see who the mystery wrestler was in the main event six-man tag match (Bobby Roode).
One year ago Raw drew a 2.26 rating. The April average through three weeks last year was 2.41, below this year’s 2.47 average in April so far. The April average through three weeks two years ago was 2.58.
