Early Raw Viewership Numbers; WWE Back to Normal?

Mike Killam

This week's post-Payback episode of Monday Night Raw brought in an average of 4.15 million viewers, up slightly from last week's lower 3.99 million average. 

The second hour of Raw drew the highest average, as per usual, with the opening and closing time slots falling behind. We will have the final 6/17 Raw rating in later tonight, but WWE should have returned past the 3.0 benchmark. This week's show had a ton of surprises and hype going in, with the return of Christian, CM Punk and Brock Lesnar, plus the advertised appearances of Triple H and Vince McMahon.
