WWE Raw Slumps to Third Lowest Viewership in Series History

-- Last night's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw slipped in viewership compared to a week ago, generating an average audience of 1.734 million for the three-hour episode, down from 1.922 million on 6/22. That is actually the third lowest audience in the show's history, behind only two episodes earlier this year on May 4 (1.686 million) and June 1 (1.728 million) and reverses a recent trend of relatively better viewership numbers.

-- On the night Raw was #3, #6 and #7 for each of the three hours with an average rating of 0.48, down as well from last week's 0.53 rating. In total viewership, Raw was #24 on the night. The three individual hours are below, which shows the telecast went on air with a relatively low audience and gradually slipped throughout the three hours.

    * Hour 1 - 1.862 million
    * Hour 2 - 1.751 million
    * Hour 3 - 1.592 million
