Originally published at Final Raw before SummerSlam generates best figures since 7/19

The go-home episode of WWE Raw leading to SummerSlam saw the show hit its best figures since July 19th when fans returned.

The three-hour show averaged 1,857,000 viewers with 0.55 in the 18-49 demographic, both are Raw’s best numbers since July 19th, which was the first night back with fans in attendance after the Money in the Bank event.

It was Raw’s second-highest audience since May 3rd and second-best 18-49 number since April 19th.

With the return of Showbuzz Daily, we have some more details on the breakdown of the show and how it performed throughout the three hours.

The show began with 1,912,000 viewers in the first hour, it fell to 1,864,000 in the second hour and saw another drop to 1,796,000 in the final hour. The 18-49 audience was consistent throughout the episode at 0.55 for all three hours.

The 50+ audience was the reason for the viewership decline as that demographic dropped 8.5 percent throughout the show. However, the performance among viewers 18-49, women 18-49, 18-34, 12-34, and 25-54 all stayed even or grew throughout the three hours.

Raw was the top cable program for the night beating Tucker Carlson Tonight 0.55 to 0.41 in the 18-49 demo, although Carlson was second among overall viewers for the night with 4,038,000.

In Canada, Raw did 240,800 viewers and 120,900 in the 25-54 demographic on Sportsnet 360, which is down from last week at 266,100 but is still a strong number for Raw in the country.

The 25-54 demo was higher this week compared to last week’s figure of 104,500.

Raw was the top sports broadcast on Monday in Canada beating out two MLB games.
