It was a mixed bag for WWE’s two shows in the wake of Survivor Series, but in general the news was good. Raw broke three million viewers for the first time in a month, and while Smackdown’s viewership was slightly down the week after its special 900th episode, they were still the best the show has seen since September.
Overall, Raw brought in 3.00 million viewers and 1.10 in the 18-49 demographics, good enough for fourth overall among original cable programming for the evening, behind football-related programming and Love and Hip-Hop. The show did drop well below 3 million viewers for the third hour, but the first two had high enough numbers to carry the show to a decent average. Meanwhile, Smackdown was down to 2.51 million viewers and a 0.81 demo rating, which was a relatively small slide from last week’s big jump, but still good enough for the top spot on Tuesday night.
