-- This week's edition of Monday night RAW drew a 3.1 cable rating, with an average of 4,478,000 viewers viewers. As expected, the first hour was the lowest rated of the three, doing 4,352,000 viewers. The second hour drew 4,657,000 viewers while hour three drew 4,352,000 viewers. That's not good news and people tuned out after the second hour of the show.
This is up from last week's show that drew a very low 2.84 (2.8) cable rating with an average audience of 4.13 million viewers. This is also the strongest rating for RAW since the 7/30 show that drew an average of 4.50 million viewers. The show had been on a three week slide in ratings since the 7/23 1,000th episode.
