Over the past two weeks, WWE had the post-WrestleMania and Superstar Shakeup episodes of Monday Night Raw to deliver higher than normal viewership numbers. They had no such draw this week, and tough competition from the NBA Playoffs.
The result? Viewership fell off a cliff.
Indeed, this week’s show drew 3.09 million viewers. That’s down from 3.62 million last week and 3.90 million the week before.
The hourly breakdown looks like it did before the big shows.
Hour one: 3.21 million
Hour two: 3.28 million
Hour three: 2.82 million
Raw was behind multiple NBA games and we’re still just in the first round of the playoffs. Same goes for the NHL. This is likely what we can expect on Monday nights for the foreseeable future.
