Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
Wrestling in the UK
- In 2012, WWE Raw averaged 160,000 (9.2%) for live airings and 38,000 (0.3%) for its first repeat, a total of 198,000 viewers per week. Unsurprisingly, the highest rating was for Raw 1000, which had 357,000 (15.1%), peaking with 479,000 (20.2%) for the return of The Rock. This is an increase on the 2011 average of 174,000 viewers.
- In 2012, WWE SmackDown averaged 104,000 viewers for first run airings. This is down on the 2011 average of 116,000 viewers.
- In 2012, TNA Impact averaged 199,000 viewers for first run airings.
Note that all ratings include anyone who watched that airing within 7 days (so no, 160,000 did not sit up to 2am and watched Raw live, they merely recorded it overnight to watch later)
Damn, WWE don't get many viewers in the UK these days. It would be interesting to see what the viewership figures in the UK were like during the attitude era.
