Ouch. One of the things that fans love to check out are the television ratings for the various television shows, especially “Monday Night Raw”. As a rule, the ratings after a pay per view are almost always going to be stronger than on any normal show. However, that really doesn’t seem to be the case this time.

According to Showbuzz Daily, this week’s episode of “Monday Night Raw” hit a four months ratings low. The show drew a 1.01 rating and an average of 2.871 million viewers, down 2% and 5% respectfully from last week. The rating is the lowest since January 9 and the lowest viewership since December 26. This week’s show was headlined by a triple threat for the #1 contendership to the Intercontinental Title.

Opinion: While last night’s show wasn’t the strongest, a lot of that had to do with the NBA Playoffs eating up a ton of the audience. There’s only so much that “Monday Night Raw” can do when it’s fighting off that kind of opposition. That being said, these numbers are little short of a disaster coming off a pay per view and a really bad sign going into the spring and then the summer.
