How did Raw do in the ratings, and which numbers actually matter?



WWE RAW Rating

How did WWE #RawAfterMania perform in the overnight ratings?

WWE held #RawAfterMania, typically one of the year’s most anticipated editions of Raw. The show was up the finals of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament, a game that went into overtime.

Hour By Hour WWE Raw 4/8/19 Ratings

  • Hour 1 – 1.2 rating (18-49 demographic), 3.182 million viewers
  • Hour 2 – 1.1 rating (18-49 demographic), 2.943 million viewers
  • Hour 3 – 1.0 rating(18-49 demographic), 2.646 million viewers

Ratings data courtesy of TV By The Numbers.

It’s important to note that Raw more than doubled it’s closest competition, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, and continues it’s stronghold on the Monday night cable ratings. The Final Four finale drew 19.63 million viewers. Raw’s rating is down from last year’s Raw After Mania, but that show did not run against the NCAA championship.

Greg’s Take

Many will point to the ratings of years past, but it’s an impossible comparison to make. Those watching TV have many more options than ever before, and can also watch the show on a delay. Personally, I watch the show on a delay on YouTube TV. The single most important measurement is where Raw falls in the Top 5. That takes into account the competition, the HUT (households utilizing television) levels, etc. In that all important measure, Raw finished #1, #2, and #3. If they drop down from those spots, consistently, then it’s newsworthy.

2019 WWE Raw viewership:

  • January 7 Episode: 2.324 million viewers
  • January 14 Episode: 2.722 million viewers
  • January 21 Episode: 2.462 million viewers

  • February 4 Episode: 2.510 million viewers
  • February 11 Episode: 2.462 million viewers
  • February 18 Episode: 2.771 million viewers (post-Elimination Chamber)
  • February 25 Episode: 2.922 million viewers
  • March 4 Episode: 2.783 million viewers
  • March 11 Episode: 2.819 million viewers (post-Fastlane)
  • March 18 Episode: 2.695 million viewers
  • March 25 Episode: 2.589 million viewers
  • April 1 Episode: 2.639 million viewers
  • April 8 Episode: 2.923 million viewers (post-WrestleMania 35)

Mitchell’s AEW Continental Classic Update! (11/27/23)

What a start to the tournament!



Did your picks win points?

The AEW Continental Classic is underway, with almost everyone competing. Check in here if you haven’t seen the winners and losers of week 1!

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points
  • Mark Briscoe: 0-1, 0 points.
  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points


Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Brody King: 1-0, 3 points
  • Claudio Castagnoli: 1-0, 3 points
  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete


My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
