Raw 6/18 Viewership Up Again For Second Week; Above 3 Million Viewers For One Hour

Raw Viewership has bounced back for two weeks.

Last week, the viewership for both Raw and Smackdown improved for the first time in months. The ratings had stabilized for a couple weeks before this uptick. According to Showbuzz Daily, the first hour of Raw had an average of over 3 million viewers and the next two hours were lower but only dropped to 2.7 million viewers. Last week's high was 2.8 million viewers.

Hour 1: 3,001,000 viewers with 1 million in the 18-49 year old demographic.

Hour 2: 2,975,000 viewers with 1 million in the 18-49 year old demographic.

Hour 3: 2,734,000 viewers with 940 thousand in the 18-49 year old demographic.

Without the NBA Playoffs, WWE has returned to the top of the rankings for cable original shows on Monday mostly due to the increase in viewers in the 18 to 49 year old demographic.

Raw had some well performing videos on YouTube. Ronda Rousey coming to the celebration of Alexa Bliss' new Championship had over 4 million views. Kurt Angle telling Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns about the upcoming number one contender match had 1.3 million views. Finn Balor versus Braun Strowman had over one million views.
