WWE Raw viewership under two million for WrestleMania go-home show

The go-home show for WrestleMania 36 did the lowest number for a live Raw episode in modern history with 1.92 million viewers on average.

The 1.65 million viewers for hour three was the lowest in the history of the show, even beating the episode on Christmas Eve of 2018.

The reality is that the empty arena format has past its curiosity level and now the viewership is going to drop, and great interviews alone is not going to cause that to change.

The decline was four percent from last week overall and five percent in 18-49 to a 0.58 average.

Raw was behind two episodes of Love & Hip Hop in the key demo, but beat that show for most viewers when it comes to non-news programming. 

Raw was 31st overall for the day, but had more viewers than any non-news show on cable.

The first-to-third hour decline was 23 percent, the fifth biggest in history.

The decline was 15 percent in women 18-49, 22 percent in men 18-49, teenagers increased, and the core audience for the show, those over 50, dropped 26 percent from the first to third hour.

The hours were:

  • 8 p.m. 2.14 million viewers
  • 9 p.m. 1.99 million viewers
  • 10 p.m. 1.65 million viewers
