Monday Night RAW saw an increase in ratings this week, as the show averaged 2.208 million viewers this week, up from the 2.109 million viewership last week. The show started off with 2.4 million viewers in the first hour, 2.27 in the second and finished at 1.92 in the final hour.

According to Showbuzz Daily, RAW was #4 in the 18-45 demographic, while it stood at #11 in overall ratings for Cable TV Shows which aired this Monday. The night was dominated by Monday Night Football, which raked in over 14 million viewers this week.

Last week’s RAW had second-lowest non-holiday ratings in its broadcast history, and the numbers seem to have rebounded after an excellent post-Survivor Series episode of RAW last week.

Seth Rollins‘ intriguing character change along with the start of several new storylines could’ve led to the small growth in ratings this week, even though the episode went up against a solid game of NFL.

RAW ratings have plummeted ever since Summerslam, and have reached shocking new lows these past few months. In comparison, SmackDown has stayed tad consistent with the ratings ever since moving to FOX and has constantly beat the red brand every week.

The numbers are usually shockingly low for December episodes, as the holiday season usually leads to drop in ratings for the show. The major fall between the first and the third hour, over half-a-million, is another discouraging sign for WWE and they must shake things up, once again!

Elsewhere, Matt Hardy, who returned during last week’s exciting episode, and his wife Reby Hardy have welcomed a third child into their lives. The couple who already have two sons, announced the arrival of a third son through Twitter.

Matt Hardy tweeted ‘BKH’ which are the initials of his son and later thanked everyone for their wishes while calling childbirth a ‘miracle.

With rumors of Hardy leaving WWE in full-flow, the latest member of the Hardy family will surely be a part of some Broken Hardy segments in the future.
