Tbh, I'm surprised the show even got a 2.48 rating, considering it plummeted all the way down to 2.5 last week. This last Monday had far better stuff on tv to watch. I literlaly skipped most of Raw myself because of the other stuff that was on.
Some here were predicting 2.1's, or "I'd be surprised if they got more than 2.3". To basically retain the same rating is a victory despite being the worst in 15 years.
Well, one thing's for sure: without Cena around to fight people, the show dives down into ratings hell.

Except Raw ratings have never been this bad even once when Cena has been champ.
