Raw dropped another four percent off of last week’s modern-era record low, with just a 2.19 million viewer average last night.
The audience started off ahead of last week, but it fell throughout the show, with both the lowest second hour in modern history, and the third hour, falling from that, was the lowest hour in modern history. The first hour was among the lowest first hours as well.
The big competition was the Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks NFL game that did 11.39 million viewers.
Raw was tenth for the night on cable, trailing only NFL related programming on ESPN and news programming.
The audience under 50 didn’t tune out at the same levels as usual, and teenage boys grew throughout the show. Women declined, but the big decline was over 50 viewers which fell 18 percent from hour one to hour three.
The three hours were:
8 p.m. 2.35 million viewers
9 p.m. 2.19 million viewers
10 p.m. 2.05 million viewers
