Raw is starting to slip in the ratings following No Mercy.
The show scored a 0.91 in the 18-49 demographic, according to Showbuzz Daily. That is down from last week's 0.96. Overall viewership numbers were 2.688 million viewers for this week, down from last week's 2.871 million. These numbers are the lowest since the June 12th episode of Raw that scored a 0.86 rating and 2.542 million viewers.
As far as rankings go, Raw took numbers 6-8 this week. The culprit, as it usually seems to be during the fall, is sports. The NFL dominated the night with 8,382 million viewers. Sportscenter and MLB took some slots as well, while Love and Hip Hop from VH1 took two spots.
In terms of hourly ratings, it was the same story as usual with the third hour taking a big fall compared to the other two hours, which were virtually identical.
Hour 1: 2,731 million viewers
Hour 2: 2,728 million viewers
Hour 3: 2,606 million viewers
The show featured the return of Kane, who came from under the ring in a surprise to attack Roman Reigns and, per the stipulations of the match, became the fifth person on The Miz's team, making it a 5 on 3 handicap match for TLC, which is this Sunday.
