WWE Raw Viewership Bounces Back


-- Last night's WWE Raw viewership bounced back after two weeks of abysmal numbers drawing 2.32 million viewers, up from last week's 1.99 million and record low 1.78 million the week before. While a 2.32 still seems low, it was going up against the Clemson/Alabama college football game, which as expected, drew a monstrous 24.3 million viewers.

-- On the night, Raw was 10th on the night among cable programs and #7, #8 and #10 in the 18-49 demographic, trailing only college football and sports related programming.

-- Hourly figures seem to suggest that the audience tuned in to see Hulk Hogan and his tribute to Mean Gene Okerlund as hour #1 drew a strong 2.6 million viewers, but it was all downhill from there. Next week, it is expected that viewership should in theory go up with football competition on Monday nights done.

    Hour 1 - 2.609 million
    Hour 2 - 2.294 million
    Hour 3 - 2.070 million
