For this week’s show, the first hour drew 1.783 million viewers (last week’s hour 1 – 1.723 million), the second hour drew 1.809 million viewers (last week’s hour 2 – 1.798 million) and the final hour drew 1.702 million viewers (last week’s hour 3 – 1.684 million).

Monday’s RAW drew a 0.46 rating in the 18-49 key demographic. This is up 4.5% from last week’s 0.44 key demo rating. That 0.46 key demo rating represents 604,000 18-49 viewers, which is up 18.69% from the 578,000 18-49 viewers that last week’s 0.44 key demo rating represented, according to Wrestlenomics.

RAW ranked #3 for the night on the Cable Top 150 with the 0.46 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. This is down from the #1 spot the show has claimed for the past five straight weeks. The MLB Home Run Derby on ESPN topped the night on the Cable Top 150 and in viewership with an average of 4.956 million viewers and a 1.43 key demo rating.

RAW ranked #12 for the night in viewership on cable this week, behind the MLB Home Run Derby, Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Five, Jesse Watters Primetime, Hannity, Rachel Maddow Show, Special Report with Bret Baier, The Ingraham Angle, Gutfeld!, Outnumbered, and ESPN’s “The Captain” documentary on Derek Jeter.

Monday’s RAW once again drew numbers that were around the average of what the show has been doing since WrestleMania 38. The sports competition this week was the Home Run Derby on ESPN, and the ESPN documentary on Derek Jeter that aired right after the derby. RAW was outranked by both of those shows this week. Monday’s show also marked the end of a five-week streak at #1 on the Cable Top 150. This week’s RAW viewership was up 1.73% from last week’s episode, while this week’s key demo rating was up 4.54% from last week.

The Bachelorette on ABC drew the best key demo rating of the night on network TV, with a 0.71, while NCIS on CBS drew the best viewership of the night on network TV with 3.251 million viewers.

Monday’s RAW viewership was down 8.21% from the same week in 2021, while the 18-49 key demo rating was down 19.29% from the same week in 2021. The 2021 episode was the post-Money In the Bank show and the return to the road for the red brand.
