Well, this is hugely disappointing for WWE.
Last night's (April 4, 2016) episode of Monday Night Raw was expected to see a big jump in viewers thanks to the fact that it came just one night after WrestleMania 32, the biggest show in the history of the company. After all, the past two years have seen viewership totals above 5 million.
This year, they barely got above 4.
The show garnered 4.09 million viewers for all three hours, up from 3.76 million last week but nowhere near the level they surely expected considering the show. The hourly breakdown once again saw a gradual drop throughout the evening.
Hour one: 4.28 million
Hour two: 4.17 million
Hour three: 3.81 million
There's no way to spin it: those are bad numbers for WWE relative to the past. Perhaps it's time to readjust expectations?
