WWE Raw stays flat in viewership, demo figure from week prior

Originally published at WWE Raw stays flat in viewership, demo figure from week prior

WWE Raw had the benefit of avoiding the World Series on Monday as the show performed nearly identical to the week prior.

The November 1st edition of WWE Raw averaged 1,689,000 viewers and 613,000 (0.47) in the 18-49 demographic, according to Showbuzz Daily and Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics with Raw finishing sixth among cable originals on Monday.

This compares to last week’s figures of 1,658,000 and 613,000 (0.47) in the 18-49 demo, which also avoided the MLB playoffs.

It’s the second week in a row that Raw did 0.47 in the 18-49 demo, after hitting its all-time low of 0.39 (of the data that is available) for the October 18th episode.

The first hour included the Raw Women’s Championship match between Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair and averaged 1,724,000 viewers and 0.47 in the 18-49 demo. The second hour fell in viewership to 1,689,000 but the demo increased to 0.48 while the final hour built towards the main event between Big E. and Kevin Owens with 1,655,000 and 0.45.

Showbuzz Daily has yet to post a breakdown of all the demos beyond the key information.

The Monday Night Football game between the New York Giant and Kansas City averaged 11,960,000 viewers on ESPN and was up 7 percent in viewers this week, which is a good sign for Raw.

The World Series will end either tonight or Wednesday with Raw’s main sports competition limited to the NFL for the remainder of the year.

In Canada, Raw averaged 143,800 viewers and 66,700 in the 25-54 demographic on Sportsnet 360, which was down from 174,000 last week. The top sports broadcasts in Canada were led by Monday Night Football, the Toronto Raptors vs. New York Knicks, and NHL game between Edmonton and Seattle.
