Well, it’s an improvement. It’s a rocky time for WWE as the television shows are only so interesting at the moment. Some of the stories are more interesting than others, but the big problem is everyone waiting until we actually get somewhere with the Money in the Bank pay per view. Last week’s show was built around the Money in the Bank qualifying matches and the numbers weren’t great. So how did a similar show do this week?
Miss the show? Here are some quick highlights.
According to 411mania.com, this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw drew a .9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.741 million viewers. These numbers are even and up 2% from last week’s .9 demographic rating and 2.689 million viewers. The rating is the lowest of the year while the viewership is the second lowest, leading only last week’s. This week’s show was also a taped show, meaning the results were available before the show went on the air and was headlined by a triple threat Money in the Bank qualifying match.
Opinion: To recap, we have a series of matches built around a match that won’t be taking place for over a month and for a prize that might not be used for up to a year. On top of that, the other big story was trying to make us believe that Roman Reigns is being held down by WWE management and feuding with Jinder Mahal as a result. And yet, we’re supposed to be surprised that the numbers are low again? Is it really this hard to figure out the problem?
What did you think of this week’s show? What is causing the low numbers? Let us know in the comments below.
