As mentioned last week, now that we're into the summer months with no major sporting events stealing away viewers, WWE appears to have settled into a groove and established its base audience for Monday Night Raw each week. Last week's episode averaged 4.13 million viewers and this week's edition, the go home show to the Money in the Bank pay-per-view (PPV) this coming Sunday night in Boston, averaged 4.03 million.
The hourly breakdown is back to starting small and growing throughout the show.
Hour one: 3.72 million
Hour two: 4.04 million
Hour three: 4.33 million
That's a solid gain all throughout the evening. If nothing else, it's impressive to think that WWE doesn't have the high end list of names like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, and Batista to lean on right now and the numbers are still holding steady at around four million viewers.
On to Money in the Bank!
