This is up 4.4% from last week’s 1.810 million viewers.

RAW ranked #1 for the night on the Cable Top 150, with an average 18-49 demographic rating of 0.57, the same as last week’s #1 ranked 0.57. This is the fifth straight week RAW has had the #1 spot. Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC topped the night on cable in viewership with 3.463 million viewers, ranking #5 on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.27 rating in the key demo.
This is the sixth week where RAW had no football competition, and because of that the show shared the #1 spot in the key demo for the fifth week in a row. RAW was up 4.4% from last week’s viewership, and even in the key demographic. This week’s drop from hour 1 – 3 was 11%, which is lower than usual.
