WWE Raw Rating Holds Up Well Against Very Stiff Competition



(Source: PWTorch.com)

Monday’s episode of WWE RAW scored a 3.05 rating, virtually even with last week’s rating. The show did hours of 3.0 and 3.1.

RAW averaged 4.60 million viewers over the two-hour broadcast, with the first hour doing 4.55 million viewers and the second hour doing 4.65 million viewers. Overall, the show was up around 100,000 viewers from last week.

While a 3.05 rating does not sound like anything to celebrate, there was fear within WWE that the rating was going to dip below 3.0 due to the stiff competition that RAW faced from the BCS Championship college football game on ESPN, which was the most-watched show in cable history. The BCS game drew a 17.8 rating and averaged 27.3 million viewers.
