Last night's Raw averaged 1.923 million viewers on the USA Network. That's up 19.5 percent from the previous week and up more than 30 percent from the record low that Raw set two weeks ago.

This was the highest viewership for Raw since April 12, which was the Raw after WrestleMania.

In the 18-49 demo, Raw drew a 0.57 rating. That's up 32.6 percent from last week and is the highest number for the show since April 19.

In addition to this being the Money in the Bank fallout episode of the show, it was the first Raw since the return of live crowds. Following his return at Money in the Bank, the show opened with an appearance by John Cena.

Year-over-year, Raw was up 18.2 percent in overall viewers. Last year at this time was a few weeks prior to WWE's move to the ThunderDome. In the 18-49 demo, Raw was up 23.9 percent from this week last year.

Here's a look at the last 11 weeks of Raw viewership and 18-49 demo ratings as compared to the 10-week average in both categories prior to this week. This week's Raw was up 16.1 percent in overall viewers and up 23.9 percent in 18-49 over the 10-week average:
