There was a big drop in the viewership for this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. That is unusual considering that viewership tends to increase on shows that take place on the day after a pay-per-view.
The show averaged 2.68 million viewers. That is a big drop from last week’s 3,066,000 viewers. It’s also a sign that people were not happy after watching Backlash and a lot of people did not care enough to watch Raw to see the follow-up.
Here is the hourly breakdown:

Hour 1 – 2.79 million viewers
Hour 2 – 2.73 million viewers
Hour 3 – 2.55 million viewers
Raw was the 5th most watched show on cable for Monday. They were up against the NBA Playoffs.
