Thanks to fallout from the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) and the return of The Rock, this week's episode of Monday Night Raw saw a big bump in viewers, going from 3.48 million last week all the way up to 4.09 million this week. That's the first time the show has averaged over 4 million viewers for all three hours since June of last year.
The hourly breakdown:
Hour one: 4.14 million
Hour two: 4.18 million
Hour three: 3.97 million
Finally, the show managed to hold up over all three hours. What's more, that final hour had more viewers than any single hour last week. Sure, fallout from Royal Rumble helped it along and Rock coming back was surely a big deal but this is an equally big win for WWE.
We'll see how it holds up next week.
