WWE Raw ratings (June 16, 2014): Here's your summertime audience

WWE.com

The ratings are in for last night's episode of Monday Night Raw from Cleveland, Ohio, and it appears we have a baseline for the kind of audience WWE will draw throughout the summer in the absence of extreme competition.

Last night's show averaged 4.13 million viewers just one week after averaging 4.12 million and 4.13 million the week before that.

Here's the hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 3.93 million
Hour two: 4.20 million
Hour three: 4.25 million

At least the pattern of popping big in the first time, maxing out in the second, and dropping off in the third appears to be a thing of the past.

This does raise the question, however, that if WWE can reasonably be expected to consistently draw 4 million viewers each week on cable, is there any hope at all that the WWE Network will get up to the 2 million subscribers the company hopes for to make the over-the-top venture profitable?

We'll have to stay tuned for all that, but early signs are that it's not looking good.
