Football takes its first chunk out of Raw ratings

WWE hasn’t started their annual competition with the NFL and Monday Night Football yet, but there was college football on opposite Raw on Sept. 6.

That led to 3 - 4% drops in overall audience and 18 - 49 year old demo ratings.

In terms of total viewers, Raw averaged an audience of 1.849 million, down from Aug. 30’s 1.907 million. Ratings dipped to a .52 average across the show’s three hours, down from .54 the week prior.

Raw still had much better ratings among 18 - 49 year olds and 18 - 35 year olds than any cable original that wasn’t football on Labor Day (another potential factor in the slight declines they saw this week). And the hour-to-hour holds continue to look okay, but not nearly as good as they did over the last two weeks.

Hour One: 1.958 million
Hour Two: 1.842 million
Hour Three: 1.748 million

Next week Raw goes head-to-head with the Las Vegas Raiders and Baltimore Ravens from the building where SummerSlam was held. We’ll let you know how that works out for them.
