WWE Raw's viewership went down again this week, this time due to some major football competition.
According to Showbuzz Daily, the January 13 episode of Raw averaged 2.030 million viewers, down from the 2.384 million viewers the January 6 episode drew. The show this week nearly dropped to less than two million viewers which would have been the second time in the last four weeks alone. This is the second Raw of the new year with the second Raw of 2019 averaging 2.722 million viewers.
In the 18-49 demographic, the show averaged a 0.61 rating across the three hours, significantly down from the 0.74 rating last week drew. A possible reason for the decline in viewers and ratings this week is the College Football Playoff Championship game between LSU and Clemson on ESPN. That game averaged 25.004 million viewers and drew aa 7.49 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
Hour 1: 2.218 million viewers, 0.66 rating in the 18-49 demographic
Hour 2: 2.059 million viewers, 0.61 rating in the 18-49 demographic
Hour 3: 1.814 million viewers, 0.56 rating in the 18-49 demographic
