Monday’s Raw drew an average of 2,740,000 viewers on USA Network, down from last week’s 2,872,000 viewers.
Raw held up surprisingly decently going up against the first week of Monday Night Football, which is expected to hurt Raw’s rating for the next 4-5 months. The Monday Night Football game between the Jets and Lions on ESPN drew 10,336,000 viewers and the second game between the Rams and Raiders, which started at 10:16 PM ET on ESPN, drew 9,607,000 viewers.
Raw was #5, #6 and #7 on cable in the 18-49 demographic for the night, with the two NFL games at #1 and #2, Love and Hip Hop Hollywood 5 on VH1 at #3 (2,016,000 total viewers) and Monday Night Kickoff on ESPN at #4 (2,638,000).
This time last year, the September 11, 2017 Raw drew 2,903,000 viewers. The September 12, 2016 Raw drew 2,690,000 viewers.
