Last night's episode of WWE Raw scored a 3.50 overall rating, with both hours scoring a 3.50 rating.

Raw was up a full tenth-of-a-rating point compared to last week's show. The show was also up nearly five percent compared to the 10-week average dating back to the middle of May.

The show averaged 5.19 million viewers over the course of two hours, including both hours above the 5.00 million mark. The last time both hours of Raw were above that level was the night after WrestleMania 26 for Shawn Michaels's farewell on March 29.

The first hour averaged 5.07 million viewers, which was the most first hour viewers since March 29. The second hour increased to 5.31 million viewers.

Including last night's Raw, the second hour of Raw has averaged more than 5.00 million viewers for the past four weeks.

The following is a break down of the last five weeks of Raw with first hour viewers, second hour viewers, and overall viewers.

June 28 - H1: 4.53 million, H2: 4.56 million, OV: 4.54 million. Rating: 3.28.

July 5 - H1: 4.46 million, H2: 5.11 million, OV: 4.78 million. Rating: 3.35.

July 12 - H1: 4.49 million, H2: 5.06 million, OV: 4.77 million. Rating: 3.32.

July 19 - H1: 4.40 million, H2: 5.17 million, OV: 4.78 million. Rating: 3.39.

Cenation= ratings


Now that they have peoples attentions, they have to start giving these 5.2M viewers a reason to stay when NFL season starts.

Raw is now getting viewership averages that are higher than the 2001 average, I do believe.

Extremely impressive.

I am not trying to be smart or anything, but how would this be possible? Wasn't WWE getting around 5 back then?

Were ratings counted different back then?

Pro Wrestling = ratings there were some good matches on RAW this week but WWE needs put on a Pro Wrestling product more than an entertainment product because Pro Wrestling is pretty much dead in this cena era.

It would seem to me that the start of Raw saw a massive boost with the 1st hour numbers being higher than they've been over the past few weeks, which leads me to this (although I hate to say it...)

Orton = ratings

Thats a nice rating. Glad to see it being steady and not going down near the 3.0 range. I'm also glad that there's no Guest Host either so that shows that they dont make a difference. Its the product and storylines that intrigues us.

This is around what I think they should always be doing. They should aim to make this the baseline rather than the dips down into the 3.1s and 3.0s.

I'd like to see them hit a 4 before the year is out, but the second half of the year tends to be pretty flat compared to the first half.

this is a very solid rating. a rating like this has to make them extremely happy heading into the summerslam ppv. numbers like this show that people are interested in this cena vs nexus angle and how its going to play out. that means that people will by the ppv. so if the wwe could continue with ratings like this, this means that the buyrate for summerslam will be higher than usual.
