WWE Raw viewership down slightly, 18-49 demo rating steady

Last night's episode of WWE Raw averaged 1.719 million viewers on the USA Network. With the show down 1.2 percent in viewership from last week, there was no post-PPV bump following Hell in a Cell.

In the 18-49 demo, Raw drew the same 0.49 rating that it did last week. That matches the best total for the show since May 10.

This continues a recent trend of Raw following a non-big three PPV (WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, or SummerSlam) not having the traditional increase.

May's post-WrestleMania Backlash episode of Raw was up just 0.4 percent in viewers from the previous week. It was down 9.4 percent in the 18-49 demo. The post-Fastlane Raw in March was down 1.5 percent in viewers and down 5.4 percent in 18-49 from the week prior. The show following Elimination Chamber in February was up 4.4 percent in viewers but even in 18-49.

Year-over-year, Raw was down 10.5 percent in viewers and down 7.6 percent in 18-49.

Here's a look at the last 11 weeks of Raw viewership and 18-49 demo numbers, along with the 10-week average prior to this week:
