    Raw viewership went up last week as well, even with NBA and NHL competition. No reason to think the lack of games was the reason this week.

    • Oh, boy. They finished in the top three spots on cable television. Are you really going to tell me that they would have done that had there been an NBA game? An argument can be made that the Raw numbers are somewhat disappointing given the lack of competition. They’ll take the top three spots. That’s great. But the viewership total? Meh. Also, are you going to compare the Raw numbers to last year or do you only do that when it makes AEW look bad?
