Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.453 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was up from the 2.352 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 2.379 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.503 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.478 million viewers. Any increase is nice, but keep in mind that last week’s show ran opposite the MLB Home Run Derby. This week’s viewership number was below July 1 edition, which delivered 2.496 million viewers coming off announcement of Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff as executive directors of the Raw and Smackdown brands respectively. It will be interesting to see how next week’s Raw Reunion themed show performs in the ratings.
