Following WrestleMania Weekend, WWE Raw saw a 9% increase in its viewership for what has traditionally been one of their biggest episodes of the year.

This year, it was a different set of circumstances with the show taped two weeks ago at the empty WWE Performance Center.

The show averaged 2,100,000 viewers over three hours on the USA Network. It’s the first week-to-week increase for Raw since March 16, which was the first Raw at the PC.

The show started with 2,311,000 viewers and their most-watched hour of Raw since March 16th. The show fell 11% in the second hour to 2,063,000 viewers and dropped another 7% in hour three to 1,925,000 viewers.

In the 18-49 demo, Raw did 0.70, which was an increase of 21% from last week with the first hour beating out all other cable programs in the key demo for Monday night. However, this demo dropped 18% by the third hour.

Females 18-49 increased 29% from last week and adults 25-54 were up 19%.

From hour one to hour three, the biggest loss was among adults 25-54 that dropped 19%. There was one category with men 12-34 that increased 2.5% by the third hour and that’s rare.
