WWE Raw posts record-low ratings for second straight week

A big Monday Night Football rating led to yet another modern low as Raw last night fell another two percent from last week's mark with 2.29 million viewers.

The audience fell through all three hours and the third hour was the least-watched hour of the show in more than 20 years, even with spending the episode promising a Shawn Michaels segment.

The big decline was in the over-50 audience, which would coincide with the best Monday rating of the season, as the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos game did 13.21 million viewers.

The actual rating isn't available but it would be expected to be the second-lowest Monday night rating for wrestling ever on the USA Network.

Raw lost to everything on the networks except CW and Raw was 16th for the day on cable, the lowest it has done in years. 

Still, it only lost to four shows on ESPN, all football related, baseball games in the afternoon, and news shows on Fox News and MSNBC.

The three hours were:

  • 8 p.m. 2.50 million viewers
  • 9 p.m. 2.33 million viewers
  • 10 p.m. 2.08 million viewers
