Raw tops cable ratings with WrestleMania Backlash go home

Raw saw a slight dip in viewership on Mon., May 10, averaging 1.82 million viewers over its three hours. That’s a roughly 3% drop from the week before.

The rating in the 18 - 49 year old demographic was unchanged at .53, which gave WWE and USA first place among cable originals in the overnights.

Here are the hourly breakdowns, via ShowbuzzDaily:

  • Hour one: 1.912 million viewers / 0.55 demo rating
  • Hour two: 1.828 million viewers / 0.54 demo rating
  • Hour three: 1.710 million viewers / 0.51 demo rating

The decline followed the usual pattern, but the rating held up better across all three hours than it did last week. Wrestlenomics’ Brandon Thurston provided additional demo numbers that will please WWE and its broadcast partner, too.

This was a go home show, but it’s not clear how meaningful those are in the streaming era. If WrestleMania Backlash features some interesting story twists, Raw may see a boost next Monday though.

Stay tuned.
