WWE had the the post-WrestleMania 33 episode of Monday Night Raw and the “Superstar Shake-Up” to keep viewership up throughout the past couple weeks. They did well with 3.76 million and 3.42 million viewers, respectively.
This week, they had no such draw and they still managed to garner 3.33 million viewers. That’s a solid number considering the lack of promotion for any given angle/match while also up against competition from the NBA Playoffs.
The hourly breakdown:
Hour one: 3.41 million
Hour two: 3.47 million
Hour three: 3.17 million
That drop in the third hour is to be expected, though they missed out on an awesome Braun Strowman vs. Big Show match that featured the ring breaking and referee John Cone taking the bump of a lifetime.
