Next weeks will surely top 5M mark, wonder how many fans who tune in to Raw1000 might stick around abit after Raw1000 as well(especially when they find out that Lesnar is fighting again)

WWE has a huge opportunity in the next few weeks to gain new fans(or regain old ones), so they better not blow it. The next 1-2 months should be better than WM quality stuff to attract these fans.

The 3.44 rating topped Raw after WrestleMania, which scored a 3.43 rating, and topped Raw after No Way Out last month, which scored a 3.42 rating. Monday's Raw ranked #2 for the year, trailing Raw after the Royal Rumble, which scored a 3.55 rating.

-- Raw averaged 4.88 million viewers, which was up 470,000 viewers (10.7 percent) compared to the MITB lead-in Raw last week.

Raw averaged 4.72 million first hour viewers, then increased to an average of 5.04 million second hour viewers. It reflects WWE's hook for the second hour to see if John Cena would cash in his MITB briefcase on WWE champion C.M. Punk after the Punk-Big Show main event.

Viewership was very similar to the Raw after No Way Out in June. The June 18 episode averaged 4.96 million viewers on the strength of 5.07 million viewers in the second hour.

-- Monday's Raw viewership was up slightly compared to the Raw after Money in the Bank last year following C.M. Punk's "walk-off" WWE Title victory. The 2011 show averaged 4.84 million viewers off a first hour average of 4.70 million viewers and second hour average of 4.91 million viewers.

-- On cable TV Monday night, Raw ranked #3 behind TNT's dramas. However, Raw took the #1 ranking among all adults, all male adults, and all teen viewers.

The key to the ratings surge was the return of younger male viewers. Raw scored its highest rating of the year in males 12-17 and Raw was up 20 percent in males 12-34. Raw also showed strong increases in males 18-34 & males 18-49 compared to last week.
Excuse my ignorance, but how the FUCK does anyone know about things like ages? How in God's name can you know about males between certain ages watching

The main contribution to the spike is down to the hype surrounding Raw 1000 imo with the fallout of MITB playing second to that. Simply put, they've hyped the shit out of this for weeks and next week I'm expecting big numbers. The hook with Cena cashing in was obviously a big part of it too. Really good number that gives them a lot of momentum now.

Its continues to amaze me how high the ratings are each and every week for what has been a show on decline for a very long time now.

The WWE/Raw brand is so freaking strong its unreal. They could put a couple of 96 year old black jews out there each week for two hours and still get 4 million viewers.

Its the very reason they are not forced to improve the product, Vince learned that after the attitude era and the death of WCW they basically could put out anything they wanted and the same people will continue to watch.

Fallout from a PPV that produces exciting and unpredictable situations? Check.

Mad as hell hype for a milestone episode taking place the following week and that has been promoted like crazy for months? Check.

Overall enjoyable show with a lot of enjoyable segments instead of just one/two? Check.

It's really not that hard to understand why this show did well. For the first time in a long time hype, and I mean real and legitimate hype, is surrounding WWE and surrounding it in spades. Of course it's going to have a positive effect on viewership.

Yup. As much as I'm fucked off at him right now, they teased a Cena cash in throughout the night and it very obviously worked with that second hour spike. Combine that with the overall higher interest in the show (due to Raw 1000 most likely) and there you have it.

In my opinion this week's RAW was a very good show compared to the last few weeks. It's obvious the high rating was based on the fall-out of MITB. WWE continues to get high ratings because their PPV's create interest that people want to see what happens next.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

I'm talking about the regular 4 million+ audience, not just Mondays rating.

The fact that the show has rarely ever gone under 4 million despite piss poor shows says alot. Most will watch whatever WWE put out.

was only 7 weeks ago (may 28th) there was doom and gloom when raw did a 2.7 rating (3.8 million viewers) and this following a pretty poor mania season ratings wise

raw brand might be strong but you still need something to keep the viewers, cena is a draw, clearly the aj/bryan/punk storyline this past month is also a draw
