Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.244 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was up from the 2.158 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 2.468 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.240 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.024 million viewers. The numbers are up, but they didn’t get a major boost from advertising that Roman Reigns would open the show. The strategy of giving away a WWE Championship match in the main event slot resulted in the 2.024 million viewers, which was up from last week’s 1.898 million viewers in the third hour.
