12/9 Raw Audience Rebounds Huge
The 12/9 edition of Raw did 4,152,000 viewers, way up from last week’s 3,541,000. That is a good sign leading into Sunday’s PPV.
Another thing we learned this week is that a good show will keep people turned in. Last week, WWE was hurt by the Seattle Seahawks-New Orleans Saints game, which did 15,500,000 viewers even though it was a blowout. Last night’s decimation of the Dallas Cowboys by the Chicago Bears did 16,192,000 viewers. So Raw’s audience grew despite stiffer competition from the NFL. The bottom line is, if the show is good people will watch. If it’s not, some of them will tune out.
