We’re honestly running out of clever ways to say that both Raw’s viewership and demo ratings were down for another week leading into WrestleMania. The show, which started off hot with a decent appearance by Roman Reigns and a great twenty-plus minute match between AJ Styles and Kevin Owens, quickly lost steam after that, and the ratings reflect that fact, as the show steadily lost viewers over its three hour length. Overall, Raw averaged 3.4 million viewers and a 1.19 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It also lost its spot on top of the list of Cable Original programming for Monday, finishing second behind Love and Hip-Hop on VH-1. All of these numbers are not a good sign with less than two weeks to go until WWE’s biggest Pay Per View of the year, a time when ratings and viewership should be at their highest.
Hour 1 (8-9 PM): 3.47 million viewers, 1.16 demo rating
Hour 2 (9-10 PM): 3.42 million viewers, 1.20 demo rating
Hour 3 (10-11 PM + overrun): 3.32 million viewers, 1.20 demo rating
