WWE RAW Ratings Fall Slightly as Triple H-Orton Era Continues

In a classic case of good news-bad news, Monday’s edition of WWE RAW, despite suffering a slight weekly viewership decline, managed to win the night’s cable ratings race.

Following last week’s solid 1.6 adults 18-49 rating and 4.28 million viewership total for the post-Summerslam show, this week’s RAW dipped to a 1.5 rating with 4.19 million.

Insofar as this week’s episode faced less competition, however, it was able to best last week’s show on the charts by claiming a nightly win. Its three hours all ranked at the top of the cable ratings heap.

Mirroring last week’s trend, Monday’s RAW improved its adults 18-49 rating with each passing hour (1.4, 1.5, 1.6) but peaked from a viewership standpoint in the 9-10PM section.

With John Cena out of action, RAW is currently being headlined by a duo of feuds: Daniel Bryan vs. The McMahons/Triple H/Randy Orton and CM Punk vs. Paul Heyman.
