— As expected, last night’s Raw drew the best viewership for the show in a long time with an average of 3.615 million viewers, up from last week’s 3.29 million.
— Not only was the show coming off of a successful Royal Rumble PPV, but it also faced no competition from any sort of football. Perhaps the best sign for WWE was that the drop off to hour three was way less significant than usual, likely due to the buildup of Triple H’s return.
— Hourly breakdown was as follows:
** Hour One – 3.628
** Hour Two – 3.643
** Hour Three – 3.628
— Raw was the top rated cable program for a couple of key demographics, including viewers 18-34, 18-49 as well as 25-54.
