Monday Night RAW Viewership Drops Slightly

March 19 episode of Monday night RAW witnessed a viewership of 3.327 million, slightly down from last week’s 3.352 million. WWE’s attempts to hype up Ultimate Deletion for the past couple of weeks took a blow as the viewership dropped by 11% from hour two to the final hour where Ultimate Deletion was aired as the show’s main event. Despite the 11% fall in viewership after the second hour, hour three garnered 3 million viewers which has only happened a handful of times in recent months.  The second hour turned out to be the most watched hour of the show.
