WWE Scores Its Biggest Ratings in Years with 1,000th Monday Night Raw
World Wrestling Entertainment officials would love to see these numbers every week. Although officials may see these numbers for one day only, it has sure given the WWE some major momentum to build on.
WWE did not just see its highest ratings in years, it also was the No. 1 cable television show of the night, according to TV by the Numbers.
WWE sent a press release announcing that the 1,000th Monday Night Raw broke company records in terms of television viewership and social media activity.
The live, three-hour edition not only had a nostalgia feeling to it with bringing back past superstars, but also achieved that old-time feeling in the ratings department.
Raw opened the first hour (8-9 p.m.) with over 5.4 million viewers. The audience only grew further, as Raw garnered over 6.31 million viewers in the second hour and 6.3 million in the last hour.
My Quick Take
The WWE universe must be happy about these ratings results. However, we should see Raw hit more realistic rating numbers after next week's show.
Monday Night Raw was a solid show. The WWE did not disappoint with all the hype that was put into it. Fans got to witness legends step back in the ring and provide a good feeling of the past and where the company is heading in the future.
I was also impressed with Raw pulling in over six million viewers for two hours straight. These numbers were not seen in years for the WWE. With Raw moving to a new, three-hour time slot, it will be interesting to see the ratings results for next week.
