Raw last night averaged 1.69 million viewers and drew a 0.47 rating in 18-49, both numbers largely the same as last week.

Total viewers were up two percent, while 18-49 was identical, actually down 1,000 viewers from last week, and 18-34 was up three percent.

The good news is that the show held the audience well, with just a four percent first-to-third hour drop, with the main event of Big E vs. Kevin Owens, which is a good sign for both of them.

Raw was sixth for the night on cable in 18-49, trailing five NFL-related shows on ESPN and ESPN2. The New York Giants vs. Kansas City Chiefs game drew 13.92 million viewers between ESPN and ESPN2 and did a 4.04 in 18-49.

Raw finished 17th for the night on cable in total viewers, but once again beat everything but NFL-related shows and news shows.

As compared to one year ago, the numbers were also similar, as Raw was up two percent in viewers, down two percent in 18-49, and up 10 percent in 18-34.

The 9 p.m. hour was the highest in 18-49, doing a 0.48, but not in total viewers.

The three hours were:

  • 8 p.m. 1.72 million viewers
  • 9 p.m. 1.69 million viewers
  • 10 p.m. 1.66 million viewers
