WWE Raw sees a jump in viewers

Finally, some good news for WWE in the ratings.

Viewership for last week’s Memorial Day episode of Monday Night Raw was down to 2.19 million viewers but that changed in a big way this week, as the show drew 2.41 million viewers. The hourly breakdown also shows the plan they had in place worked perfectly:

Hour one: 2.31 million
Hour two: 2.56 million
Hour three: 2.35 million

Of late, we’ve seen viewers drop from hour one to hour three but here the second hour got the big bump and the third hour was up from the first. We can attribute that to WWE all but guaranteeing Brock Lesnar cashing in his Money in the Bank contract (which never actually happened) and an Undertaker appearance to end the show (which ended up being a two minute promo that got cut off as the show went off the air).

We’ll see how these numbers look next week after Super ShowDown.
