Raw Viewership Up From Last Week, Third Hour Crashes

There's good news and bad news about this week's Raw rating.

The good news is that, according to Showbuzz Daily, the number was up to 2,813,000 viewers, up from last week's 2,759,000 viewers. The bad news is that the third hour crashed, as you'll see below:

New Japan Cup USA Finals Set

Hour 1: 3,147 viewers (0.97 18-49)

Hour 2: 2,862 viewers (0.87)

Hour 3: 2,430 viewers (0.78)

Raw scored the third, fifth and sixth spots for the night on cable. NFL and Sportscenter scored the first two spots while Love and Hip Hop scored the fourth spot.

This episode of Raw focused on Roman Reigns and the Intercontinental title. After defeating Jason Jordan, Samoa Joe attacked him and later interfered in the main event, where The Bar managed to retain their tag team titles after Samoa Joe managed to distract Dean Ambrose long enough to walk into a brouge kick by Sheamus for the win.

Set for next week's show is a showdown between Drew Gulak and Rich Swann where the winner meets Enzo Amore for the Cruiserweight title. We'll also see Kane and Braun Strowman battle it out.
