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.
Hour 1 (8-9 PM): 3.38 million viewers, 1.11 demo rating
Hour 2 (9-10 PM): 3.30 million viewers, 1.13 demo rating
Hour 3 (10-11 PM + overrun): 2.89 million viewers, 1.02 demo rating
