WWE Raw ratings inspire little confidence in Survivor Series pay-per-view on Nov. 24

The ratings are in for the "Survivor Series" go home edition of "Monday Night Raw" last night (Nov. 18, 2013) in Nashville and the numbers inspire little confidence in the pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend.

If it seems like WWE is struggling to sustain any sort of momentum since the summer bled into the fall and Monday Night Football took to the airwaves for this year's NFL season, well, that's because that's the case. Ratings for Monday Night Raw have consistently disappointed despite relatively entertaining television.

For the most part.

Last night's (Nov. 18, 2013) episode of Raw, featuring a country theme and representing the go home edition to the upcoming Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend, did a 2.73 rating and an average of 3.80 million viewers for all three hours. Those are basically the same numbers as last week (2.73 rating and 3.76 million viewers).

Here's the hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 3.77 million
Hour two: 3.97 million
Hour three: 3.67 million

Raw was up against one of the best football games of the season, as the Carolina Panthers held on to defeat the New England Patriots by a final score of 24-20 on ESPN. The game did nearly 16 million viewers, one of the better numbers of the year for Monday Night Football.

Survivor Series feels like it pales in comparison as an event, and it feels an awful lot like WWE is simply biding its time in wait for January and WrestleMania season.
