After two consecutive weeks of strong WWE RAW ratings, the Monday flagship fell to a year-to-date low this week.
RAW averaged a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating with 4.26 million viewers, the latter of which represents the smallest viewership figure for a show in 2013.
All three hours averaged the same 1.5 adults 18-49 rating; the 8PM portion drew the strongest viewership with 4.35 million.
While this week’s show featured an appearance from The Rock, it lacked a unique curiosity draw equivalent to the prior week’s angle involving Brock Lesnar. Without any other urgent angles to boost interest, it was certainly surmisable that this week’s show would fall back into a typical viewing pattern.
