Against a juggernaut NFL Monday Night Football game featuring the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles drawing 16.84 million viewers with a 6.9 rating among adults 18-49 — up 29% in viewers from last week’s game and up 32% in adults 18-49 — WWE RAW took a dip in the ratings week-to-week last night (11/7/11).
RAW drew 4.02 million viewers overall throughout its two-hour broadcast, down 10% from last week’s 4.49 million viewers. More troubling for the long-running pro wrestling program was that the broadcast dipped 7% from the first hour to second, dropping from 4.17 million in the 9PM EST hour to 3.86 million in its second hour. Overall, the show drew a 1.65 rating among adults 18-49 throughout its two-hour telecast, down 5% from last week’s 1.75.
UPDATE: The broadcast drew a 2.88 cable rating last night, down 7% from last week’s telecast. This was the lowest rating the series has drawn all year along aside from the Fourth of July holiday airing earlier this year.
