Monday’s WWE RAW rating (11/28/11) on USA Network drew a 3.2 cable rating with 4.48 million viewers. However, it is troubling to note that the first hour drew a 3.33 rating with 4.63 million viewers and the second hour dwindled 8% to a 3.07 rating with 4.33 million viewers. This follows a recent trend of viewers tuning out during the second hour of the show, which isn’t good news for the company considering they had promoted a WWE Championship main event one week in advance.
Historically, RAW has built viewers in the second hour until this past year. This week’s show was down from the 4.72 million viewers that it drew last week coming out of the Survivor Series pay-per-view, or a drop of just over 5%.
