After a series of good ratings by modern standards, Raw fell back to its lowest mark since Halloween night last night, averaging 2.75 million viewers, down seven percent from last week.
The show-long New Day title record storyline didn't resonate that strongly with viewers, as there was a major second hour turn off, which partially was due to the football game.
The New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens game did 12.92 million viewers last night, up from 8.09 million for the Colts-Jets game last week, but two weeks ago Raw did its some of its best numbers of the fall with the Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks title match against a game that did 13.06 million viewers.
Raw was seventh for the night on cable, trailing the football game, SportsCenter and four shows on Fox News.
The three hours were:
8 p.m. 2.93 million viewers
9 p.m. 2.71 million viewers
10 p.m. 2.63 million viewers
For an hour-by-hour comparison with last week, hour one was down seven percent, hour two was down nine percent, and hour three was down six percent.
