WWE Raw ratings up again on road to SummerSlam

Raw had another increase in ratings last night to 3.23 million viewers, up two percent from 3.16 million last week, making it the most-watched episode of the show since April 17th.

The build to SummerSlam and four-way program with Brock Lesnar, Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns, and Braun Strowman has followed the Lesnar vs. Joe program in boosting ratings after record lows at the end of basketball season.

Raw was the top show of the night on cable, well ahead of Hannity on Fox News in second place at 2.68 million viewers. The third hour of Raw beat everything on television head-to-head except ABC.

A notable pattern is that the third hour stayed strong with males 12-49, not losing from hour two, but the decline from hour two was in viewers over the age of 50, and with women.

The three hours were:

  • 8 p.m. 3.26 million viewers
  • 9 p.m. 3.31 million viewers
  • 10 p.m. 3.14 million viewers
