WWE Raw Viewership Down Against Stiff Competition Monday Night

-- Last night's drew 2.75 million viewers, down a bit from last week but a strong showing considering the significant competition on Monday night.

-- The college football national championship game drew a massive 27.38 million viewers, which is surely going to be the biggest number that Raw will face all year. Raw finished 6th on the night among shows on cable, trailing only football related programs.

-- Hourly numbers were:

    * Hour 1 - 2.99 million
    * Hour 2 - 2.78 million
    * Hour 3 - 2.50 million

-- With WrestleMania around the corner and the worst of the sports competition behind them, expect Raw's viewership to start increasing over the next couple of months.
