Raw last night did 4.29 million viewers, down 7 percent from last week. The number is good. They beat the early NBA playoff game (3.65 million viewers) but got beat badly late (5.44 million). However, Raw did its best against the stronger game.
The three hours were
8 p.m. 3.96 million
9 p.m. 4.41 million
10 p.m. 4.45 million
This changed the trends where the audience had peaked in hour two. The usual summer pattern is a weak hour one and strong growth, but of late, that hasn't been the case to the degree of this week.
The show should finish at between a 3.0 and 3.2 rating.
