Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.324 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was up from the 1.968 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 2.609 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.294 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.070 million viewers. The college football national championship game delivered 24.322 million viewers for ESPN, which was down from 27.383 million last year. Raw delivered 2.76 million viewers against the national championship game last year. So while the viewership number was up compared to the holiday weeks, it was down notably compared to last year. It should be alarming that last night’s game was a blowout and yet the third hour was just above two million viewers.
