Monday’s WWE Raw television show averaged 2.006 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. Viewership was down from the 2.335 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: The first hour of Raw averaged 2.289 million viewers. Hour two drew 2.004 million viewers. The final hour of the show averaged 1.726 million viewers. The three hours finished third, eighth, and tenth in the cable ratings, mostly trailing news shows.

The March 25, 2019 edition of Raw delivered 2.589 million viewers.
