This week’s go-home episode of RAW before Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view featuring the Slammy Awards nearly matched the same ratings as last week in its standard two hour timeslot (9-11:05PM EST), drawing 4.32 million with a 1.7 demo, even with the 4.35 million and 1.65 demo last week.
In its three hour timeslot, the telecast drew 4.11 million viewers with a 1.6 demo. The first hour drew 3.67 million with a 1.4 demo, the second hour increased 18% in total viewers in its 9PM hour, bringing in 4.49 million with a 1.8 demo. Even with a three-hour special, the now-typical trend of the rating dwindling in its last hour continued. The 10PM hour drew 4.16 million viewers with a 1.6 demo, dropping 7% in viewers and 11% in the demo from the second hour of the show.
By comparison to the Slammy Awards at the comparable time last year on Dec. 13, 2010, the broadcast drew an average 4.64 million viewers throughout its three-hour broadcast, which is off by 530,000 viewers and 11%.
