Considering last night's (Nov. 25, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw from Uniondale, New York, featured all the fallout from the Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) this past Sunday night in Boston, it's no surprise to learn that ratings are up from weeks prior.
The show pulled a 2.93 rating and averaged 4.13 million viewers for all three hours. That's with Monday Night Football on ESPN, featuring the San Francisco 49ers 27-6 win over the Washington Redskins, averaging over 13 million viewers, a fine number itself.
However, the troubling trend of losing viewers throughout the evening continued. Let's consult the hourly breakdown:
Hour one: 4.31 million
Hour two: 4.29 million
Hour three: 3.79 million
That's quite the plummet from hour two to hour three. It makes sense, too, that the top of the show would do so well considering fans wanted to see how WWE would follow up on the events of Survivor Series. They did so by quickly announcing a John Cena vs. Randy Orton double title match at the upcoming TLC event on Dec. 15 in Houston.
It was downhill from there.
It's time to beat the same drum again: Raw is treading water until January when the NFL's regular season comes to a close and WrestleMania season kicks into gear.
