WWE Raw draws huge ratings for Money in the Bank go-home show

Raw last night did gigantic numbers with no real obvious reason since nothing major was advertised for the night.

The show averaged 1.97 million viewers with a 0.61 rating in 18-49 and a 0.46 in 18-34. The numbers are the likes of which the company usually does after a major show when they leave with a big curiosity angle, and not the week before it.

The first two hours were just over two million viewers.

Raw was second on cable behind the LSU vs. Florida game in the college baseball World Series that did 3.43 million viewers and a 0.85 in 18-49. That was much tougher competition than the show usually gets at any time other than the NFL season and NBA playoffs. Raw was second to the game across the board in all the key demos.

Raw was fifth in total viewers for the night on cable, trailing the baseball game and three news shows, which is one of its highest night placings over the past year.

Raw also beat everything on network TV in 18-49.

This was Raw's best number in both viewers and in 18-49 since the show the Monday after WrestleMania.

The show was up eight percent in viewers from last week, which itself was an up week, up nine percent in 18-49, and up 24 percent in 18-34, which was the key figure along with a giant increase in teenage viewership.

The show didn't feature somebody like a John Cena, Roman Reigns or Logan Paul who one could point to for a jump in younger viewer ratings and the main event was Cody Rhodes vs. Damian Priest.

From one year ago, and keep in mind the show one year ago featured John Cena, Raw was up one percent in viewers, up 13 percent in 18-49, and up 15 percent in 18-34.

There was a third hour drop, but even so, the third hour numbers were strong. The first-to-third hour drops were 11 percent in men 18-49, six percent in women 18-49, 29 percent in women 12-34, 12 percent in men 12-34 (which did far above usual numbers), and 14 percent in people over 50.

The three hours were:
