• WWE RAW Draws Record Low Viewership This Week
The longest running weekly episodic television show made a very negative record during this week’s episode.
This week’s RAW featured a contract signing segment between WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins in the main event.
According to ShowBuzz Daily, RAW drew an average of 1.817 million viewers.
This is down from last week’s 1.842 million viewers. This is also the lowest non-holiday week RAW viewership in history. The December 23, 2019 episode drew 1.835 million viewers and the December 24, 2018 episode averaged 1.775 million viewers.
This is the lowest non-holiday viewership in history for hour one. This is also the second-lowest third hour of all-time, including holidays.
Vince McMahon already discussed this problem on his earnings call last week, and said that it is happening due to the show featuring new wrestlers.
