WWE Raw Viewership Comes Crashing Down for Post-Backlash Show

-- Viewership for last night's WWE Raw was way down even after Backlash generating an average of 2.682 million viewers, compared to over 3 million last week. That was bad news considering the show was coming off of the Backlash PPV, which by most accounts was a terrible PPV. It was the least watched Raw of 2018.

-- On the night, Raw was #5, #6 and #7 in the 18-49 demographic and 5th overall in total viewership. Leading the charge was the Raptors vs. Cavaliers NBA playoff game which was watched by 5.9 million viewers and the Celtics vs. 76ers which was watched by 3.395 million.

-- Hours for Raw were as follows:

Hour 1 - 2.788 million
Hour 2 - 2.731 million
Hour 3 - 2.549 million
