WWE Raw ratings slip below 4 million viewers on Labor Day

The ratings for this past Monday night's episode of "Raw" slid below 4 million viewers for the Labor Day show.

Due to the Labor Day holiday, the ratings for this past Monday night's (Sept. 2, 2013) episode of Raw were delayed an extra day. That meant waiting on the numbers for the continued storyline centered around Triple H knowing what's best for business and all you peons not having a clue.

Well, the number of peons watching was as small as its been in two months.

Yes, though Triple H has claimed ratings have only been going up since Randy Orton became WWE champion at SummerSlam, that hasn't really been the case. SmackDown ratings are on the rise, but this past Monday's episode of Raw did a 2.85 rating and an average of 3.93 million viewers.

The hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 3.69 million
Hour two: 4.14 million
Hour three: 3.97 million

It should be noted that there was competition from college football, which started its season this past weekend, and it was also Labor Day, but with Monday Night Football on ESPN beginning next week, it was thought WWE would pull out all the stops with a big angle to get fans interested enough to continue tuning into the programming.

Instead, it was another beatdown on Daniel Bryan in what is fast becoming a repeat of every show the company puts on.

Next week is always the most interesting as far as ratings go, as the NFL kicks off its season and Raw really has to step it up to compete.
