WWE RAW Viewership Decreases On 12/5, Demo Rating Slightly Rises

WWE RAW viewership saw a decrease in viewership on December 5, which featured a triple threat match between Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, and Nikki Cross.

According to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, 1.556 million viewers watched the show on Monday night. This number is down from last week, when an average of 1.668 million viewers tuned in.

In the 18 to 49 demographic, RAW scored a 0.41 rating and ranked sixth among cable originals. Last week’s show drew a 0.40 rating in the same demographic.

Monday Night Football dominated cable last night on ESPN, so RAW took the fifth, sixth, and ninth spots in the demographic among cable originals on Monday night, with hour one taking the top spot of the three hours this week.

The hourly breakdown, courtesy of Showbuzz Daily, is as follows:

  • First hour: 1.748 million viewers, 0.44 in the 18 to 49 demographic
  • Second hour: 1.596 million viewers, 0.44 in the 18 to 49 demographic
  • Third hour: 1.263 million viewers, 0.35 in the 18 to 49 demographic

Thurston noted that the average viewership for the third hour (1.263 million) were a new all-time low for RAW. Overall, the viewership was RAW’s lowest number since the October 31 episode.

This week’s episode opened with a promo from The Bloodline, which led into an Undisputed WWE World Tag Team Title Match that saw The Usos retain over Matt Riddle and Kevin Owens. The main event saw Alexa Bliss win a triple threat match with Nikki Cross and Becky Lynch, due in large part to interference from Dakota Kai and IYO SKY.
