WWE News: RAW’s Audience Sees Another Drop, Moves Back Up In Top 5 (12/3/18)

A look at last night’s ratings for WWE RAW!

Following last week’s widely criticized (and justifiably so) episode of WWE’s Monday Night RAW saw a drop in ratings and the weekly Cable Top 150 Rankings (see that here), last night’s edition at least gave a bit better of a show for the viewing public. Does that translate in the ratings?





Numbers for last night’s edition of the red brand are now available and there’s a big drop again, going down to a 2.286. This is a decrease from last week of 3.5%, meaning the show has lost over 8% of its viewership from two weeks ago. Here’s a look at the last four weeks of ratings for RAW:

  • November 12th: 2.449
  • November 19th: 2.493
  • November 26th: 2.368
  • December 3rd: 2.286

However, in another case of bad news/good news, Monday Night RAW was able to jump back up a spot in the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic, although they maintained their same share from last week. With the red brand also occupying the number six and seven spots, here is last night’s top five:

  1. Monday Night Football – ESPN – 3.62
  2. Monday Night Kickoff – ESPN – 1.46
  3. SportsCenter (12 AM) – ESPN – 1.21
  4. Monday Night RAW (9PM) – USA Network – 0.85
  5. Love & Hip Hop – VH1 – 0.84

EA’s Take: Well folks, more proof that the ratings mean absolutely ‘Dick Cheney’, for the most part. I’d like for anybody to just go look back at the Monday Night Football ratings for the past few weeks because they’re just as up-and-down as WWE’s. Granted, the numbers are bigger, but they’re increases and decreases all the same. Yet, for some reason the sky is only ever falling for the WWE, right? So while that very vocal minority who always wants to boycott or protest is always the loudest, just follow the 18-49 numbers. They’re consistent EVERY week. Ratings are not though and can be affected by so many other factors, especially today, that they aren’t a good gauge anymore. For some reason, all the curmudgeons still seem to use them as a point in their own narratives though, so keep doing you!
