WWE: Raw ratings fall against NCAA basketball

Raw last night dropped nearly 1.4 million viewers from the prior week, but last night's 3.96 million viewers has to be considered a success going agaisnt the Wisconsin vs. Duke NCAA basketball finals.

The basketball game did 28.3 million viewers, up 33% from last year's finals.

Raw's numbers were:

8 p.m. 4.30 million viewers (before the game started)

9 p.m. 4.04 million viewers

10 p.m. 3.55 million viewers

Since the second hour of late has been the highest rated hour, it does indicate Raw would have likely pulled a very big number, coming off last week's huge number, without the basketball competition.
