WWE Raw ratings (May 11, 2015): Late Spring slump continues

Last week, Raw's rating dipped to their lowest point in years...the lowest in a non-holiday, non-football week since 1997, in fact.

WWE pulled out, well - not all the stops - but several of them to try and reverse the trend. And Daniel Bryan, Triple H and all the push toward Payback did okay, bringing in 3.69 million viewers. That's up from last week's dismal 3.57, but not even back to the 3.75 million that disappointed observers for the Extreme Rules fallout show.

Here's an hourly breakdown, which shows that viewers tuned in early but dropped off big late. Maybe I wasn't the only one who didn't feel like watching after Daniel Bryan left the Intercontinental belt in the ring?

Hour one: 3.824 million
Hour two: 3.853 million
Hour three: 3.385 million

What do you think is behind Raw's ratings slump? It was the third highest rated cable broadcast of the night, behind Love & Hip-Hop and the NBA Playoffs. What, if anything, can Vince & company do to break out of their late Spring slump?
