WWE Raw ratings slip back under 4 million viewers for June 24 episode

WWE.com

The ratings for last night's (June 24, 2013) episode of "Monday Night Raw" fell back below 4 million viewers for all three hours for a show that featured Daniel Bryan getting his big clean victory over Randy Orton.

We're all certainly big fans of Daniel Bryan around these parts, as he's undoubtedly been doing some of the very best work of his career over the past year and some change, but his clean victory over Randy Orton in the main event of Monday Night Raw last night (June 24, 2013) in North Charleston, South Carolina, loses just a little luster when looking at the numbers.

That's because the show, centered around multiple segments with Bryan both opening and closing the evening, failed to average 4 million viewers for all three hours and garnered a 2.90 rating.

Here's the hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 3.74 million
Hour two: 4.28 million
Hour three: 3.91 million

That's quit the jump for the second hour, though there's nothing to indicate anyone is or isn't largely responsible for it outside of the normal patterns we see. Raw was up against Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals featuring the Chicago Blackhawks winning the championship by defeating the Boston Bruins in a thriller, but it's hard to gauge whether or not that game had much to do with Raw's numbers.

Hockey is great, but it's still only hockey.

Either way, one of the biggest clean victories of Bryan's career came at a time when the ratings are low and the company is trying to build toward its big summer run. We'll see how, or if, this affects anything.
