Raw Ratings Jump After Royal Rumble

Finally, some good news on the WWE ratings front.  While their ratings are never truly deplorable based on a variety of factors, this week’s “Raw” ratings experienced an increase following Sunday’s Royal Rumble.  The show enjoyed an average viewing audience of 2,703,000.  Here’s the hourly breakdown:

Hour 1 – 2,816,000 viewers
Hour 2 – 2,718,000 viewers
Hour 3 – 2,575,000 viewers

Better still is that for all three hours, “Raw” was the most-watched show in cable on Monday night.


Botch Take:  Good for them.  WWE has given us excellent TV this week and the numbers for “Raw” reflect that.  I’d be interested to see “Smackdown Live”‘s numbers as well.
