The quarterfinals of the WWE title tournament led to an audience rise this week, up to 3.28 million viewers, up from 3.16 million last week and 3.24 million the week before.
The Houston Texans upset of the Cincinnati Bengals going head-to-head did 12.19 million viewers, so Raw did a better number than last week against a more viewed football game.
The pattern remained consistent with the first hour doing well, with the first half hour not against football doing the strongest, and the audience fading in the second and third hours, but not fading at the level of last week.
The third hour was built around Roman Reigns vs. Cesaro and the controversial Paige-Charlotte contract signing.
The three hours were:
8 p.m. 3.54 million viewers
9 p.m. 3.29 million viewers
10 p.m. 3.05 million viewers
