Monday’s 25th Anniversary edition of Raw saw the program’s highest viewership in almost three-years.
The show lasted a total of 3 hours and 17 minutes with an approximate average viewership of 4,500,000 on the USA Network, which is their highest mark since the night after WrestleMania 31 in March 2015.
The first hour drew a huge viewership with 4,803,000 viewers, including a 20-minute opening segment involving The McMahon family and Steve Austin.
The second hour saw a drop down to 4,641,000 viewers and the third hour dropped almost 500,000 viewers to an average of 4,147,000.
The 13.6% drop from the first hour to the third hour would indicate that interest for the show was huge, but the show had a notable tune out factor and they were unsuccessful in maintaining that audience throughout the show.
This will likely be the most-watched episode of Raw all year and perhaps longer. This number was significantly higher than the most-watched episode of Raw in 2017, which was the night after WrestleMania 33 and did 3.77 million viewers that night.
