A look at the 2021 Monday Night Raw television ratings
It was not the best of years for Raw when it comes to television ratings as their average viewership dropped compared to 2020, a year which saw empty arena shows and virtual fans.

The show hit rock-bottom this year a couple of times, breaking the record of the least viewership in the show’s history.
The July 5 show averaged just 1,472,000 viewers for the least-watched episode ever and the December 6 episode drew the worst 18-49 demo with just an average of 0.35.
Raw only surpassed the 2 million viewer mark three times this year, with the January 4, April 12, and August 23 shows. Last year, Raw went over 2 million a total of 13 times.
