After climbing out of a record low hole thanks to episodes of Monday Night Raw surrounding the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV) and Brock Lesnar returning with Undertaker to finish up their business, WWE's flagship program has once again fallen back to a record low number of viewers.
Indeed, this week's show drew just 3.24 million viewers, down from last week's 3.35 million and the lowest non-holiday number in the three hour era.
Here's the hourly breakdown:
Hour one: 3.37 million
Hour two: 3.18 million
Hour three: 3.18 million
It's good, at least, that viewership didn't fall off completely over all three hours. It certainly appears as though these are the numbers we can generally expect over the coming months until the annual January turnaround heading into WrestleMania season.
