The White Rabbit tease, which led to SmackDown's biggest audience of 2022, didn't carry over to Raw last night as the show averaged 1.67 million viewers overall and drew a 0.45 rating in 18-49.

The show stayed even against a Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants NFL game that drew 19.34 million viewers between ABC, ESPN, and ESPN2. That number was slightly lower than the NFL did the previous two Mondays, but well above what has been the usual level of the past several years.

Raw was sixth on cable in 18-49, behind the game on ESPN and ESPN2, the kickoff show, the postgame show, and SportsCenter after the postgame show. Raw did beat the Countdown show which did 1.27 million viewers and a 0.44 demo rating.

Raw was fourth in women 18-49, seventh in men 18-49, sixth in people 18-34, fourth in women 12-34, and sixth in men 12-34.

In overall viewers, Raw was 16th, behind three NFL-related shows and 12 news shows.

Raw was up five percent in viewers from last week, was the same in 18-49, and was up 12 percent in 18-34.

From one year ago, Raw was down two percent in viewers, down seven percent in 18-49, and up seven percent in 18-34.

Third-hour drops from hour one were not significant as compared to last week, and the teenage audience grew during the show, which is a positive for the Matt Riddle vs. Damian Priest main event.

The three hours were:

  • 8 p.m. 1.73 million viewers
  • 9 p.m. 1.75 million viewers
  • 10 p.m. 1.54 million viewers
