By Wade Keller, PWTorch editor


The Monday, Feb. 4 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw on USA Network drew a 1.78 rating, down from last week’s post-Rumble edition of Raw which drew a 1.92 rating but above the two-weeks-ago rating of 1.73.

The first hour draw 2.656 million viewers, this second hour a slight drop to 2.552 million viewers, and then the now-typical big third hour drop to 2.321. That’s a first-to-third hour rating drop of 335,000. The average drop-off this year is 395,000.

The third hour closed with the Kurt Angle & Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin & Drew McIntyre main event, plus “A Moment of Bliss,” EC3 vs. Dean Ambrose, and Lio Rush vs. Bobby Lashley.

Each of Raw’s three hours were the top rated shows on cable Monday night with ratings in the key 18-49 adult demographic of 0.9, 0.9, and 0.8. Raw’s first two hours were first in total viewers, edging out “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC with a substitute host, which came in third with 2.508 million viewers total.
