WWE Raw ratings down from previous two weeks

Raw on Monday night averaged 1.74 million viewers and did a 0.53 rating in 18-49, down from the special shows the last two weeks and pretty normal for this football season.

They had a strong Seattle Seahawks vs. Philadelphia Eagles game head-to-head that did 11.38 million viewers, a 3.40 rating in 18-49, and a 2.51 rating in 18-34.

Raw placed fourth for the night in 18-49 behind three NFL related broadcasts on ESPN. It tied for fourth in men 18-49, was sixth in women 18-49, fifth in 18-34, and fifth in Males 12-34. In every key male demo, the only thing that beat Raw was football related programming.

Raw was 19th overall, but beat everything on cable except for NFL related programming and news programming.

Raw was down four percent from last week, which is good considering last week was the Raw after Survivor Series. It was down seven percent in 18-49 and seven percent in 18-34.

As compared to the same week last year, Raw was down 21 percent in viewers, 23 percent in 18-49, and 40 percent in 18-34.

The first-to-third hour drops were 13 percent for women 18-49, 11 percent for men 18-49, a one percent increase in girls 12-17, a nine percent decrease in boys 12-17, and an 11 percent decrease in people over 50, so nothing too unusual or noteworthy past teenage girls holding up better than usual and doing an usually large number.

The three hours were:

8 p.m. 1.83 million viewers
9 p.m. 1.76 million viewers
10 p.m. 1.63 million viewers
