On the final RAW broadcast before this Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view, there was a drop of 6% in the household rating, scoring a 3.09 rating, down from the 3.3 rating last week. The overall viewership was down as well, down 3% to 4.54 million, down from 4.7 million last week.
There wasn’t much of an increase from the first to the second hour to re-assure WWE that viewers were tuning in late as the first hour drew a 3.08 and the second drew a 3.09. Viewership grew about 130,000 viewers from hour-to-hour: from 4.47 million to 4.60 million. No word on what the extended over-run drew, though.
