Airing on Memorial Day, this week’s show garnered an average viewing audience of 3,602,333 viewers on the USA Network. This was the lowest average viewing audience for a live Raw broadcast this year.
Below is how viewership broke down by hour:

Hour two – 3,858,000 viewers
Hour three – 3,411,000 viewers
Monday’s WWE RAW drew a year-low cable rating of 2.64. This was the lowest RAW rating since New Year’s Eve 2012
