Monday’s episode (5/14) of WWE Raw on USA Network drew a 1.92 rating, just a small notch down from last week’s 1.94 rating. Hourly viewership followed a similar pattern as recent weeks, with a dropoff of 275,000 viewers from the first hour to the third hour.
Hourly viewership: 2.903 million, 2.692 million, and 2.628 million. The average first-to-third hour dropoff this year is 402,000. The ten-week rolling average through this week is 2.28.
Last year Raw drew a 1.89 rating this week, and two years ago it drew a 2.27. So again, Raw is following a trend of being slightly above year-ago numbers but well below two years ago numbers. Raw through this week last year averaged a 2.18 rating, and this year is averaging a 2.23 rating.
The third hour of Raw went up against game one of the Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets NBA Western Conference Championship Series.
