WWE Raw Ratings 9-21: Record Low results


Raw set a new record low last night with 3.34 million viewers, down slightly from the 3.39 million last week and 3.37 million the week before.

The shows represent the three lowest audiences for Raw aside from a July 4th or a Christmas or New Year's Eve dating back to 1997.

While expected that football would hurt numbers this fall and send them to some record lows, this has been worse than expected.

The New York Jets vs. Indianapolis Colts game did 12.48 million viewers, down from the prior week, but it was the New York market and that's a traditional strong WWE market where the home team will hurt Raw ratings worse than any other market.

Another difference is the second hour was no longer the highest.  The first hour saw the initial 30 minutes before the game kicked off which gives it an edge now.

The three hours were:

8 p.m. 3.42 million viewers 9 p.m. 3.37 million viewers 10 p.m. 3.26 million viewers

Bellator on Saturday night did 800,000 viewers, also a major disappointment, going against a plethora of college football games.
