After last week’s show was one of the worst-rated in history thanks to the Presidential Debates, this week’s Raw managed to claw back some of those losses, although it still couldn’t crack 3 million viewers, which it dropped below when Monday Night Football returned. The show, which featured the first Women’s Division match in the main event since 2004, and saw Sasha Banks recapture the Raw Women’s Championship in a great match, averaged 2.8 million viewers and a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic, a significant jump from last week’s low. Overall, the show finished #4 behind football and Love and Hip-Hop in original cable programming for the evening.
