Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.321 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was down from the 3.093 million average from last week.
The first hour of Raw averaged 2.407 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.324 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 2.233 million viewers.
Powell’s POV: The viewership decline from was expected given that last week’s show was the Raw Reunion special. WWE brought in all those extra viewers to see the legends last week, yet did nothing to hook them on the current product, and thus the viewership for this week’s show was lower than the 2.453 million average the show drew for the July 15 edition. As I wrote last week, Raw Reunion may have been entertaining for what it was, but it was also a big missed opportunity.
