Monday's WWE Raw Viewership Down Slightly; Straight Up Steve Austin Tops One Million


-- WWE Raw was down slightly in viewership from a week ago, generating an audience of 2.507 million compared to 2.528 million on August 26 and 2.534 million on August 19. On the night, Raw was #3 in total viewership behind a college football game (5.6 million) and the Weather Network's early morning coverage of Hurricane Dorian (2.7 million). In the 18-49 demographic, Raw secured positions #2, #3 and #4 behind the football game.

-- Hourly figures showed a pattern not seen in recent weeks, but commonplace in the past with the first hour scoring the highest audience and a gradual decrease as the show went on:

    Hour 1 - 2.638 million
    Hour 2 - 2.557 million
    Hour 3 - 2.326 million

-- Straight Up Steve Austin, which aired directly after Raw and featured WWE Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch, was watched by almost 1.1 million people after falling below a million last week.
