WWE Raw ratings for Elimination Chamber go home show lowest of the year

Monday Night Raw is still doing well enough in the ratings with The Rock back as WWE champion but this week's episode, the go home show to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, did the lowest number of the year.

The ratings are in for last night's (Feb. 11, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw, which was the go home show to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) this Sunday night in New Orleans, and surprisingly enough, the episode did the worst number of the year.

The three hour show did a 3.16 rating with an average of 4.26 million viewers. That's compared to 4.81 million last week. Here's the hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 4.35 million viewers
Hour two: 4.24 million viewers
Hour three: 4.17 million viewers

It's odd to see the numbers fall steadily throughout the night, especially for a show centered around building toward the PPV this weekend. The Rock's return was hyped all night and the numbers still managed to drop.

Maybe no one wanted to hear that crackhead story after all.

Then again, ratings are much higher than they were before "The Great One" returned and they're still high enough to make Raw the number two show on Monday night in all of cable.
