Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.819 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was up from the 2.783 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 2.838 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.866 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.752 million viewers. Although the Drew McIntyre and Dean Ambrose match ended up closing the show, some of the credit for the third hour number has to go to Roman Reigns being advertised as working his first singles match since his return to the ring. The match didn’t take place, but it would appear as though Reigns being advertised helped keep viewers watching while under the assumption that he would work the main event.
