Raw Viewership Falls After Superstar Shake-up

Ronda Rousey

Last night’s Raw fell down to well below pre-WrestleMania season levels with 3.09 million viewers. This is down 14 percent from last week’s Superstar Shake-up show.

Not including the unusually large numbers from the past two weeks, Raw has been doing consistently well above 3.3 million viewers. However, this is also the time of the year that Raw viewership starts declining, which gets exacerbated by the NBA Playoffs.

Raw was fourth for the night on cable television, including trailing NBA games between the Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz that did 3.49 million and 3.87 million viewers.

Raw also had a 12 percent drop from hour two to hour three, which featured a 10-Woman Tag Team Match main event. This is a normal pattern, though.

Raw averaged 3.62 million for last week’s Superstar Shake-up episode and 3.90 million for the night after WrestleMania.

Viewership for each individual hour is as follows:

8:00 p.m. – 3.28 million viewers
9:00 p.m. – 3.21 million viewers
10:00 p.m. – 2.82 million viewers
