— Monday’s WWE Raw brought in 2.528 million viewers, down marginally from the 2.534 million the show generated a week earlier. Throwing out the Raw Reunion episode, this is still one of the most watched Raw episodes since the April-May timeframe.
— On the night, Raw finished 5th in total viewership and was knocked off the top perch in the 18-49 demographic by the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards on MTV but beat it handily in total viewership. Still, the show finished #2, #3 and #4 in that key demo as it usually does every week. With the NFL season close to beginning, Raw gets to enjoy one more week of viewership before an expected downslide.
— Here are the hourly figures for yesterday’s telecast, showing a pretty big drop off in that third hour which hasn’t been the norm lately.
* Hour 1 – 2.637 million
* Hour 2 – 2.686 million
* Hour 3 – 2.260 million
— Meanwhile Straight Up Steve Austin which airs directly after Raw, slipped below 1 million as it was watched by 987,000 viewers. It drew 1.078 million last week and 1.211 million two weeks ago for its debut episode.
