Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.547 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was up from the 2.193 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 2.717 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.558 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.367 million viewers. WWE benefitted from the return of Vince McMahon and, to a lesser extent, coming out of a pay-per-view. The holiday numbers are likely to be down, but there’s cause for optimism for a viewership increase in the new year since the Monday Night Football season will wrap up next week.
