WWE Monday Night Raw topped the night’s cable ratings in the 18-49 Top 150.
The show also had a .60 rating in the 18-49 demo during the 9 pm EST hour, good enough to win the night on cable. However, despite featuring a main event with Bobby Lashley defeating The Miz for the WWE Championship, Monday’s episode of Raw saw a slight decline in the ratings from last week, with an average viewership of 1.884 million viewers.
Last week’s post-Elimination Chamber episode averaged 1.89 million viewers.
WWE relied heavily on bait-and-switch booking throughout the night in an attempt to keep viewers around for the entire show. Raw’s first hour garnered 1.918 million viewers before falling to 1.817 million for the third hour. Raw’s third-hour viewership was up just under 3% from last week’s 1.765 million.
