Nick Paglino

wwe raw ratingThis week’s edition of WWE Raw finished with a 3.04 cable rating, which is down from the 3.06 rating the show drew last week. This week’s show was the post-SummerSlam edition of Raw featuring the crowning of new WWE World Champion Brock Lesnar.

As we previously reported, this week’s Raw averaged 4.194 million viewers, which is also down from the 4.3 million average from last week.

Paglino: This week’s show was up against more pre-season NFL football, which took in about 7 million viewers. But, the trend of the third Raw hour continuing to drop remained consistent this week, with the third hour dropping fromĀ 4.33 million in the second hour to 3.972 million in the last hour.
