Due to a disastrous third hour, Raw did not have much of a bounce back after the end of football competition.
Monday night’s show did 3.48 million viewers, only up 160,000 viewers from last week’s show that went up against the national championship college football game.
On this night was clear what did the show in was the show itself, with major pattern of declines from start to finish, including a third hour that did 3.12 million viewers, a number that would have been considered poor even going against a huge NFL game.
The show was promoted around building to a Highlight Reel segment where Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns would meet face-to face. No major matches were plugged for hour three.
The three hours were:
8 p.m. 3.78 million viewers
9 p.m. 3.59 million viewers
10 p.m. 3.12 million viewers
