Raw Rating Lowest Of The Year So Far

The final Raw before Extreme Rules continued a trend of reasonably decent shows that somehow aren’t drawing ratings, as the third hour of the show lost over 300,000 viewers to dip under 3 million, and dropped the averages for the entire show to some of the lowest numbers of 2016. Overall, the show, which featured a main event contract signing between Natalya and Charlotte in the heart of Flair Country, averaged 3.19 million viewers and a 1.09 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which was the lowest demo rating since December of last year. Raw ranked fourth among Monday cable originals, behind the NBA playoffs and Love and Hip-Hop on VH-1.
