According to the Neilsen Twitter TV ratings, WWE Monday Night RAW was up five percent in their Twitter audience with 1.297 million accounts, and twelve percent in total impressions at 7.195 million.

The audience numbers track how many accounts are tweeting about RAW during the show, and the impression is the number of total tweets sent during the show. Even with the small increase in numbers, RAW still fell to #5 in series/specials on Monday, and would have been ranked third behind ESPN’s Monday Night Football and WGN’s coverage of the Cardinals/Cubs baseball game when compared to other sports programming.

RAW saw some tough competition on Monday night, with NBC’s “The Voice”, ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars”, VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop”, and FOX’s series premiere of “Gotham” all beating out RAW in the series and specials category.

It should be noted that even with the increases in impressions and audience, RAW’s numbers have dropped over time. Not including last week’s episode (September 15th), this week’s RAW would have been the lowest rated episode since May 19th.
