We knew WWE would see a big bump in viewers for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, because it was the post-WrestleMania edition. The only question was just how high they would go.
This week’s show drew 3.90 million viewers, up from last week’s 3.35 million. That’s a pretty big jump, though it’s still well behind the 4.50 million viewers who tuned in for the Raw 25 special back in January.
Here’s the hourly breakdown:
Hour one: 4.10 million
Hour two: 4.07 million
Hour three: 3.60 million
That’s a big drop in the third hour but that’s more or less the norm for Raw. These are good numbers, all things considered, and reason to be happy as WWE continues negotiating its new TV contract.
