WWE Raw 1/17 Viewership Way Up From Last Week

With football gone, Raw's numbers are up, just in time for Raw 25 this coming Monday.

Showbuzz Daily reports that Raw averaged 3,250,000 million viewers, way up from last week's  2,760,000 viewers. It didn't win the night on cable, as a NBA match between the Warriors and the Cavaliers won the top spot of the night. But it grabbed the second, third and fourth spots for the night. With Raw 25 airing next week, that show may be one of the highest rated shows WWE has had for years.
