wwe-raw-ratings-breakdownWWE Raw ratings are in for Monday, June 3rd as it scored an overall 2.66 cable rating, down six percent from a year-low 2.82 rating last week on Memorial Day.

On top of this week’s WWE Raw ratings being the lowest of the year, it also was the lowest non-holiday rating since December 3, 2012.

WWE Raw ratings faced some serious competition against Game 7 of the NBA Playoffs featuring the Miami Heat vs Indiana Pacers. Game 7 drew 11 million viewers on TNT compared to Raw’s 3.676 million viewers. This is down 7% from last week’s near-year-low viewership of 3.95 million viewers.

Viewership Hourly Break Down: 3.616 million first hour viewers (vs. 3.490 million viewers for the NBA Pre-Game Show on TNT), 3.617 million second hour viewers, and an increase to 3.795 million viewers in the third.

During the third hour, the NBA Playoffs game turned into a blow-out and WWE delivered Heyman-Jericho verbally, Daniel Bryan in the ring, and John Cena in the main event, which helped grow the audience.
