WWE Raw 1/29 Viewership Down; Third Hour Loses 600,000 Viewers

Raw ratings are still up from what they were in the fall following Sunday night's Royal Rumble, but a concerning pattern still continues as ratings fell from last week's soaring highs.

In terms of viewership, WWE Raw won the night on cable, according to Showbuzz Daily. The three hours average out to 3,394,000 viewers, down from last week's 4,530,000, though that is to be expected considering the high amount of coverage the Raw 25 show got.

The hours had a familiar pattern, with the first hour starting strong, the second hour holding up relatively well, then the third hour crashing. Between the first and third hours, Raw lost over 600,000 viewers:

Hour 1: 3,662,000

Hour 2: 3,461,000

Hour 3: 3,061,000

We have a tie this week in the most watched segments of Raw on YouTube. The main event, which had John Cena defeating Finn Balor to advance to the Elimination Chamber match, did 1.3 million views. Braun Strowman dumping the announce team stage on Kane scored the same amount of views.  Elias dedicating a new song to Matt Hardy did the least amount of views with 84,000.
