Here’s how Raw viewership did against NFL Week 1

The NFL kicked off its regular season Monday Night Football schedule this week and that meant Monday Night Raw would be facing its annual stiffer than normal competition. The good news is that the show held up just fine this week.

Last week’s Labor Day show drew 2.87 million viewers while this week’s episode dropped down to 2.74 million.

Considering it was up against not one but two football games, that’s not a bad drop, especially considering that’s above the numbers the show was doing throughout the month of May.

The hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 2.81 million
Hour two: 2.80 million
Hour three: 2.60 million

Expect more of the same going into the winter months.
