Coming off the Clash of Champions event coupled with a lesser-watched Monday Night Football game, WWE Raw saw an increase in their viewership from last week.
Over the three-hours, Raw averaged 2,272,000 viewers, an increase of almost 7% from last week’s episode that went against an NFL doubleheader.
Raw displayed the usual pattern with the first hour performing best with 2.417 million viewers and included the final of the King of the Ring between Baron Corbin and Ricochet.
In the second hour, Raw fell 4% and averaged 2.319 million viewers before falling another 10% in the last hour to 2.079 million viewers. The show built towards Seth Rollins vs. Robert Roode in a non-title match that lasted ten-minutes and ended with run-ins from the OC, Kane, and The Fiend.
The Cleveland Browns and New York Jets game attracted 11,797,000 viewers, which was down almost 10% from the 8 pm game last week. Next week’s Monday Night Football game feature Chicago against Washington.
From this week in 2018, Raw was down 14.5% year-to-year. Last year’s Monday Night Football game was almost identical with 11,720,000 viewers but they also faced competition with the Emmy Awards last year that did 10.2 million viewers.
