WWE Raw 12/25 Viewership Slightly Down For Christmas

Raw's viewership numbers were down from last week, but not by much.

The first ever live Christmas edition of the show scored 2.704 million viewers, down slightly from last week's 2.786 million, according to Showbuzz Daily. The hours had their normal pattern, though the third hour drop wasn't all that significant:

WWE Championship Match Set For WWE WrestleMania Backlash, T-BAR And Mace Attack The New Challenger

Hour 1: 2.948 million (0.93 18-49)

Hour 2: 2.620 million (0.79)

Hour 3: 2.543 million (0.79)

Raw ranked 5th, 6th and 7th for the night. NFL games dominated the night on cable, along with Sportscenter and the countdown show.

In terms of YouTube viewership, the Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe Intercontinental title match has topped everything else thus far, scoring 2.3 million viewers. The Bar vs. Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan scored second place with 1.2 million viewers. John Cena vs. Elias isn't too far off with one million viewers. Hideo Itami vs. Brian Kendrick, in a match where Kendrick was seriously hurt, is the low performer with 247,000 views.
