WWE Raw posted its second-lowest viewership ever for this week’s episode featuring SmackDown’s Baron Corbin crossing over to face Drew McIntyre as part of the new brand-to-brand invitation system.
An 8% decline in overall viewership saw the show go from the previous week’s 1.92 million to an average of 1.76 million, as the trend swings back towards the all-time low of 1.68 million set two weeks ago.
Here’s how that breaks down by the hour:
Hour three: 1.64 million.
Hour one: 1.82 million
Hour two: 1.81 million
Though things held up between the usual between the first two hours, the third saw its typical drop, with the above number being the second-lowest third-hour number in the show’s history. Again, the all-timer was set on 4 May.
As far as the key 18-49 demographic goes, Raw came through with a 0.51 rating. It outdid all non-news shows apart from a couple of 90 Day Fiance broadcasts on the night. This figure is down 42% on the same week last year.
The third-hour decline was largely amongst women, as while the show retained much of its male viewership for the final third, women in the 18-49 demo dropped by 21%.
