WWE Raw 4/1 Viewership Up Heading Into WrestleMania; Big Drop In The Third Hour

Third hour hurts Raw heading to WrestleMania 35.

ShowBuzzDaily reports that Monday's episode of WWE Raw averaged 2,638,000 viewers across the three hours. This number is up from last week's 2,589,000 average, but down from two weeks ago. The Mar. 18 edition averaged 2,695,000 viewers. As you can see in the hourly breakdown below, a huge dip in the third hour caused the average to lower.

The show averaged a 0.91 rating across the three hours, up from last week's 0.88. Once again, a poor third-hour showing hurt the overall rating. The three hours of Raw still took the top three spots among cable originals for Monday with the second hour winning the night.
