RAW ranked #4 for the night on the Cable Top 150, with an average 18-49 demographic rating of 0.53, down from last week’s #1 ranked 0.56. This ends a streak of 8 straight weeks at #1, since the end of football. RAW ranked #4 this week due to college basketball. Tucker Carlson Tonight on FOX News topped the night on cable in viewership with 3.096 million viewers, ranking #13 on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.24 rating in the key demo.
This is the tenth week where RAW had no football competition, but they did have significant competition from college basketball, which ended their run at #1 in the key demo. RAW was down 1.5% from last week’s viewership, and down 5.4% in the key demographic rating.
This was the third-lowest RAW viewership of the year, behind the February 8 and February 17 shows, but only down 1.5% from last week’s go-home episode. This was also the third-lowest 18-49 key demographic rating for RAW this year, behind the January 25 and February 8 shows, and down 5.4% from last week’s go-home show.
This week’s RAW viewership was down 9% from the same week in 2020. The key demo rating was down 13% from the same week last year. The year-to-year numbers are better than they have been in recent weeks, but this was the time last year when ratings and viewership were dropping fast due to the shows airing from the closed-set WWE Performance Center.
American Idol on ABC drew an average of 4.939 million viewers on broadcast TV in the 8pm hour while the NCAA basketball coverage drew 5.851 million viewers on CBS, The Voice drew 7.058 million viewers on NBC, 911 drew 2.614 million viewers on FOX and CW’s Bulletproof drew 478,000 viewers, all in the 8pm hour on broadcast TV.
