Raw Ratings Take A Hit This Week

Last week’s episode of Raw did particularly well.  As much as we don’t love seeing the past take over an episode of the show, the ratings indicate that the Raw audience at large does…so what do we know?

This week, however, was a very different story.  This episode (which we glowingly reviewed [here]) was watched by 1.8 million people.  In the valuable 18-49 demographic, it grabbed an 0.55.  Here’s the hourly breakdown courtesy of Showbuzz Daily

Hour 1: 2.024 million
Hour 2: 1.802 million
Hour 3: 1.632 million


Botch Take:  All of these numbers are down a bit from last week.  Given how bad this show was, you can see that it’s numbers crashed hard by hour 3.  Richly deserved, in my humble opinion.  A dreadful show deserved a dreadful number.  Frankly, it deserved less than it got.  It’ll be very interesting to see the rating for next week.
