Memorial Day WWE Raw Suffers Massive Drop in Viewership

-- Monday's Raw - on Memorial Day - saw a significant drop in viewership averaging only 2.487 million for the three-plus hour show, down from last week's 2.6 million. -- It is the least watched Raw in almost two years and the second lowest all-time, scoring even lower numbers than the October 31, 2016 show which fell on Halloween. The only show that did worse was in September 2016 against the Trump vs. Clinton debate. Competition was tough too on Monday with 14.81 million people tuning in to watch the NBA playoff game between the Warriors and the Rockets and over 5 million watching the NHL game between the Golden Knights and Capitals. -- On the night, Raw was #5, #6 and #8 in the 18-49 demographic for each of the three hours and was #4 in total viewership behind the NBA game and other basketball related programming. -- The hours for Raw were:
    Hour 1 - 2.593 million Hour 2 - 2.591 million Hour 3 - 2.300 million
