WWE Raw ratings (Sept. 15, 2014): Night of Champions go home show viewers down

If reports from various sources are to be believed, WWE structured last night's episode of Monday Night Raw to counteract the Monday Night Football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts over on ESPN. The thinking, apparently, was to lead with John Cena and Paul Heyman, craft a story that would stretch through the first two quarters of the football game, and pay it off during halftime.

It didn't pay off much in the ratings.

In fact, the show failed to crack four million viewers for any of the three hours, something that hasn't happened since the Memorial Day show back in May, which was the lowest rated show of the year. Overall, the episode averaged 3.82 million viewers, down from 3.98 million last week.

The hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 3.90 million
Hour two: 3.94 million
Hour three: 3.62 million

That third hour is the lowest since late last year. For what it's worth, the Eagles-Colts game drew 14.9 million viewers. The competition from football is always stiff but these numbers are undoubtedly causing a few folks in Stamford to squirm.
