This week’s episode of Raw, which was highlighted by a heavily advertised appearance from Shane McMahon, as well as a hard sell for the upcoming Network special WWE Roadblock, featuring Dean Ambrose challenging Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Title, was not good enough to earn WWE a ratings victory, as viewership and demo ratings fell for the second straight week. This must be concerning for WWE, as this period of the year is when they usually expect to garner higher ratings, due to it being WrestleMania season. On the bright side, Raw remained the #1 cable show overall.
Overall, Raw averaged 3.55 million viewers and a 1.26 rating in the 18-49 demographic. As usual, the show lost nearly half a million viewers over its three hour length.
Hour 1 (8-9 PM): 3.76 million viewers, 1.29 demo rating
Hour 2 (9-10 PM): 3.61 million viewers, 1.27 demo rating
Hour 3 (10-11 PM + overrun): 3.28 million viewers, 1.23 demo rating
