Raw audience increases for Draft fallout

The Street Profits

After seeing a decline in viewership for the draft episode, this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw saw an unexpected increase in the viewership numbers of the show.

This week’s episode of the Red Branded show main evented by Street Profits’ debut in a tag team match against the OC drew a total of 2.342 million viewers.

This is a 2.76% increase from last week’s episode of the show which was the second night of the drafts and had drawn a total of 2.287 million viewers.

The first hour of the show was the highest watched hour again. The first hour drew 2.477 million viewers while the second and the third hour then brought in 2.373 million and 2.175 million viewers respectively.

It’s worth mentioning here that SmackDown did not have the same fortune and the latest episode of the show saw another major decline in the audience with 2.442 million viewers, down from 2.877 million viewers the previous week.

    It did, if not for the draft the ratings would have been even lower.

    But by your logic the first SD after the draft should have kept them interested.

    Ratings are based on a multitude of things, and if one sees an upswing because of the post draft line up, why would the other show not do the same?

    The fact that the draft shows themselves drew lower ratings says that the upswing this week has nothing to do with the draft.

    Then why did Smackdowns ratings drop?

    Next week’s numbers will be down at least 8%. People only tuned in to see the new roster.
