Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.871 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was up from the 2.773 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 3.008 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.894 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.711 million viewers. WWE has to be pleased with the numbers given that they aired opposite Monday Night Football (including the Star Wars trailer premiere at halftime) and an MLB Playoff game. It’s also encouraging that the third hour didn’t crash despite the fact that the WWE Cruiserweight Championship was announced fairly early in the show as being the main event.
