This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw drew 2.80 million viewers, down slightly from last week’s 2.90 million. Of course, that show had the hook of featuring the returns of both Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey.
The hourly breakdown:
Hour one: 2.83 million
Hour two: 2. 85 million
Hour three: 2.73 million
The appeal of Rousey’s first match on Raw wasn’t enough to hold the entire audience who tuned in from the top, but there was a lesser drop than usual. In fact, the entire third hour was heavy on women’s wrestling and it held up quite well.
That’s encouraging for the future, especially considering the Evolution pay-per-view that is now just over two months away.
