Monday’s WWE Raw scored a 2.49 rating, up from the 2.47 rating the show drew last week. Raw averaged 3.575 million viewers, up from the 3.536 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: These numbers have to be disappointing to WWE considering that this was the first time they didn’t face Monday Night Football since Labor Day. WWE will face strong college football competition next week in the form of the huge national championship game. The January 5, 2015 edition of Raw delivered a 2.8 rating with 3.762 million viewers. It’s worth noting that the viewership did not substantially increase last year either.
