Raw Viewership Drops Without Goldberg

WWE Monday Night Raw couldn't retain the momentum from Bill Goldberg's return.

According to Showbuzz Daily, Monday's episode of Raw drew 2.819 million viewers, down from last week's 3.130 million viewers. This represents a huge 311,000 viewer fall from the last edition.

Hour one drew 2.983 million viewers, hour two landed at 2.806 million viewers, while hour three plummeted to 2.669 million viewers. Last week's show was able to hold steady for the third hour, as Goldberg's return caused a huge jump.

This week's episode of Raw featured the return of Brock Lesnar, as well as a triple threat match between Chris Jericho, Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens. The program also served as the go-home show for WWE Hell in a Cell.

Raw was #3 on cable for Monday night, following Monday Night Football and the O'Reilly Factor, which is seeing a big benefit from election season. Raw fell to #4 in the 18-49 demographic, behind NFL, SportsCenter and Love & Hip Hop.
