Last night's Raw was down slightly with viewers but pretty much the same with the key demos, averaging 1,817,000 viewers and drawing a 0.53 rating in 18-49, placing first for the night.

Raw also beat ABC among the networks last night.

Raw was second to Below Deck Sailing Yacht on Bravo in women 18-49, doubled everything in men 18-49 with no NBA competition, was first in 18-34, second in women 12-34, and first by a wide margin in men 12-34.

In total viewers, Raw was seventh last night behind six news shows.

It was a consistently declining audience over the three hours with an 11 percent drop, which is in the normal range for Raw.

Interestingly, women stayed with the show more than men. The women's drop was only five percent in 18-49 from hour one to hour three. The men 18-49 drop was seven percent. The teenage girl drop was 23 percent and teenage boys gained three percent. The big reason for the drop was over 50 losing 13 percent, and that's the majority of the viewing audience.

Miz & Mrs. due to the previews maintained the Raw audience strongly and finished fifth for the night with 784,000 viewers and a 0.27 rating in 18-49, up 13 percent in viewers and up 23 percent in 18-49.

As compared to last week, Raw was down three percent in viewers, was even in 18-49, and down three percent in 18-34.

As compared to the same week last year, Raw's audience was down five percent, 18-49 was up two percent, and 18-34 was up 11 percent.

The three hours were:

  • 8 p.m. 1.91 million viewers
  • 9 p.m. 1.83 million viewers
  • 10 p.m. 1.71 million viewers
