WWE Raw viewership up slightly, 18-49 rating down eight percent

Raw had split messages this week as viewers increased 7,000 from last week to 1.72 million, but 18-49 was down eight percent to 0.47, the latter being the third lowest number in the history of the show.

Raw finished fifth for the night in 18-49 and was 24th overall. It was fifth among non-news shows. The NBA game head-to-head did a 0.67 in 18-49 and 1.53 million viewers.

As compared to the same week last year, Raw was down 37 percent in viewers, 49 percent in 18-49 and 67 percent in 18-34.

Raw started well above last week and the second hour didn't drop much, but hour three had the big drop with a normal 12 percent first-to-third hour drop. So the Raw Underground curiosity didn't hold the audience this week, but they did start out with more interest in hour one than they had in a long time.

As far as first-to-third hour drops, it was 18 percent in women 18-49, two percent in men 18-49 (so held up better than usual there), two percent in teenage girls (so not the increase of last week, but still held up better than usual), and teenage boys were up eight percent, again better than usual. So there was something in hour three that appealed more than usual to boys, men and women teenagers. 

The three hours were:

  • 8 p.m. 1.81 million viewers
  • 9 p.m. 1.75 million viewers
  • 10 p.m. 1.60 million viewers

The final episode of Titan Games did 3.54 million viewers, the lowest number of the season and a drop of three percent from last week. The show did the same 0.7 in 18-49 it has consistently done all season. It won the night among networks in 18-34, 18-49, 25-54 women, 18-49, men 18-49 and was second to a rerun of The Neighborhood on CBS overall. 

90 Day Fiance on TLC beat Titan Games and everything else on television in 18-49 at 0.80.
