Monday Night Raw ratings taking a beating

David Dexter reports that the 11/26 edition of Raw started off very well but then the bottom dropped out as the show progressed. That has been the case for a while now but it got much worse this week. The show averaged 3,920,000 viewers, which was up from last week’s 3,835,000. That is the good news. The bad news is that there was serious erosion as the show went on. Hour one was the most watched, with 4,147,000 viewers. Hour two dropped slightly to 4,126,000. Hour three however bombed, losing over 600,000 sets of eyeballs, dropping to 3,488,000 viewers. Two bad teams were playing on Monday Night Football so that isn’t an excuse. Are three hours of Raw just too much to watch? I think that is a reasonable conclusion.
