WWE Raw viewership is shockingly low

WWE has seen a steady decline in viewership for its flagship program, Monday Night Raw, for some time now. The question has long been just how low it can go.

Pretty damn low!

Like, shockingly low, as this week’s numbers indicate.

Indeed, last night’s episode drew just 2.15 million viewers. That’s down from last week’s 2.37 million, and one of the lowest non-holiday numbers in history. The hourly breakdown looks even worse, with the third hour failing to even break the two million viewer mark.

Hour one: 2.33 million
Hour two: 2.24 million
Hour three: 1.89 million

Viewing habits have changed in 2019, absolutely, but popular programs still draw a ton of eyeballs. Raw is still doing okay relative to other cable shows, but this should be cause for great concern at WWE headquarters.

There are no big stars, no big storylines, and the show simply doesn’t resonate with fans anymore. WWE itself admitted this earlier this year and promised a fix but clearly they have yet to deliver, at least in a way that is meaningful to a wider audience.
