When you’re competing with the big boys, sometimes you have to take what you can get.

According to a new report from F4WOnline, this past week’s episode of “Monday Night Raw” was seen by an average of 2.85 million viewers. Although this number is slightly down from last week, it’s actually not too bad, considering that the “Monday Night Football” game that it was up against, the Dallas Cowboys vs. the Detroit Lions, had an average of about 18.16 million viewers. This made it the highest watched game of the season.

The breakdown for each hour is as follows:

8 p.m. 2.97 million viewers
9 p.m. 2.88 million viewers
10 p.m. 2.72 million viewers

What makes this a good thing is that although viewership declined each hour, the drop was not too severe. Falling ratings throughout the course of the show has been the norm since daylight savings time began.

It should be expected that the amount of people that watch the show will increase once 2017 begins, with the end of “Monday Night Football.”

This week’s “Raw” culminated with Roman Reigns retaining the United States Championship against Kevin Owens.


Editor’s Note:

In my opinion, ratings don’t mean much anymore; it’s all about engagement on social media these days.
