WWE Raw ratings rebound for Elimination Chamber fallout show

The ratings are in for this past Monday night's (Feb. 18, 2013) episode of Raw, featuring all the fallout from the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view this past weekend. And you'll notice a pattern right away.

Although not as high as the numbers coming out of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) event a few weeks ago, this past Monday night's (Feb. 18, 2013) episode of Raw pulled solid ratings for the Elimination Chamber fallout show, much higher than the lowest of the year just last week for the go home show leading into the event.

The show, featuring The Rock unveiling the new WWE championship but not much else, did a 3.3 rating and an average of 4.66 million viewers for all three hours. Here's the hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 4.82 million viewers
Hour two: 4.67 million viewers
Hour three: 4.49 million viewers

You can clearly see that interest was high to kick off the show, as it usually is coming out of a major PPV, but waned as the night went on. Viewership was still high to close the show, though the company likely would have been better served to tease the big reveal of the new WWE championship title design throughout the night instead of simply promoting a "championship celebration" for The Rock having retained his title at Elimination Chamber against CM Punk.

What's done is done, though, and now we're really on the "Road to WrestleMania." That means we're looking at plenty of weeks of television with Rock, Brock Lesnar, Triple H, Vince McMahon, Chris Jericho, and maybe even Undertaker.

There's a lot to look forward to and the numbers won't be falling much farther anytime soon.
