WWE RAW Ratings Rebound From Last Week’s Low, “Bates Motel” Falls

Ratings for Monday’s WWE RAW did not set the world on fire this week, but as a rebound from last week’s disappointing performance, they certainly brought welcome news.

The show, which still faced competition from the NBA Playoffs, posted a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating with 4.05 million viewers.

In a throwback to its most common trend, RAW delivered its best numbers–a 1.6 rating with 4.25 million viewers–in the 10PM hour.  And its worst numbers came at the onset; the 8PM portion could only muster a 1.3 with 3.79 million viewers.

*While RAW was on the rise, “Bates Motel” slipped for the first time in several weeks.  After seeming to settle in at a 1.3, “Bates” fell to a 1.0 rating with 2.48 million.  Interestingly, the decline comes amid the heavy involvement of Jere Burns’ character, which has been the greatest source of positive critical enthusiasm.
