The final episode of Monday Night Raw before the WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view (PPV) this Sun., Sept. 16, 2012, in Boston, Massachusetts, took place last night and was marred by tragedy when Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack live on the air late into the three-hour broadcast.

"The King" is currently in the hospital being treated.

Due to the incident with Lawler, social media buzz for the show was higher than normal, as fans and non-fans alike were drawn to the situation to stay up to date on the latest news surrounding Lawler. After all, Michael Cole was giving periodic updates throughout the night while the show went on sans commentary.

The ratings are in for the show and they remain at usual levels. All three hours averaged 4.14 million viewers, breaking down to 3.77 million in the first hour, 4.36 million in the second, and 4.27 million in the third. The third hour viewership was up from last week though still down from the average for its slot.

Raw was going up against the first week of Monday Night Football on ESPN and both the "Bengals vs. Ravens" and "Chargers vs. Raiders" games did over ten-million viewers.
