WWE Raw ratings (Dec. 26, 2016): Viewers down for the holiday

Unsurprisingly, Raw’s numbers were down on Dec. 26, the day after Christmas. The good news for WWE is that the 2,855,000 who tuned in wasn’t that big a drop from Dec. 19’s 2,955,000 viewers for the fallout show after the Roadblock: End of the Line pay-per-view (PPV).

The size of the audience dropped at the usual pace as things built to the latest iteration of Kevin Owens (with Chris Jericho) vs. Roman Reigns/Seth Rollins:

Hour one: 2.97 million
Hour two: 2.88 million
Hour three: 2.72 million

For the evening, Raw was fifth in total viewers and ratings share among the 18 - 49 demographic, against competition which included a Dallas Cowboys game on Monday Night Football that attracted a season-high audience 18.6 million.

Next week, WWE is promising Goldberg’s first appearance since the night after Survivor Series, and a Last Man Standing match between Sami Zayn and the star of the past couple weeks worth of Raws, Braun Strowman.
