WWE Raw viewers flat overall, but with a bigger third hour drop

On average, WWE’s audience for Monday Night Raw on Aug. 26 looks a lot like it did the week before. 2.53 million viewers tuned in for both episodes.

Looking at each of the three hours paints a different picture, however. The 8PM Eastern third of the show had more viewers than the first hour on Aug. 19, and Raw again added eyeballs in hour two. But the 10PM Eastern drop off was steep.

What’s interesting here is that two of the most viewed videos on WWE’s YouTube channel - Sasha Banks vs. Natalya and Braun Strowman & AJ Styles’ United States title rematch - were in the third hour.

The hourly breakdown:

Hour one: 2.68 million
Hour two: 2.69 million
Hour three: 2.26 million

Raw’s rating among 18 - 49 year olds was down slightly on the night, and WWE was not the highest rated cable original with MTV airing the VMAs opposite the red brand.
