This week's edition of WWE Raw dropped well below 4 million viewers with the lowest final rating of 2014. The first hour drew only 3.535 million viewers, which is the least since Raw switched to a 3-hour format, excluding holiday specials. The second hour shot up to 3.9, and back down to a 3.85 for the third and final hour.
Overall the show saw a 6% drop from last week's Raw broadcast, which had a 2.88 rating that was one of the worst scores of the year. The final number for this week is a 2.72, with an average of 3.763 million viewers.
A slight drop was to be expected, as Raw was pre-taped in London, England this week. Keep in mind that the last time WWE was in the UK, Raw did a 2.73, with a 2.75 the week prior, so the numbers are fairly consistent, albeit it with a marginally bigger drop than expected.
