Raw did one of its lowest numbers in history on Monday night on the USA Network.
The three-hour show averaged 2,158,000 viewers, which is down 9% from last week and down 29% from this week in 2018.
The first hour averaged 2,336,000 viewers and fell to 2,241,000 in the second hour before a larger drop in the final hour with 1,898,000 viewers leading up to the show-closing contract signing. Going into the show, they only advertised that the Raw participants at Money in the Bank would be revealed.
The show went against Game 2 of the Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers series that did 3,829,000 viewers on TNT and the start of the Portland vs. Denver game for the final 25 minutes of Raw.
This week’s average would be lower than any Raw number from 2018 except for the episodes on Christmas and New Year’s Eve that did 1.775 and 1.968 million viewers respectively.
Last year’s show on April 30, 2018, did 3.060 million, which was coming off the Greatest Royal Rumble event that weekend.
