WWE News: First RAW of December sees viewership increase
Monday Night RAW brought in 2.20 million viewers for the first episode of December and reached their highest viewership since October.
RAW was up nearly 100,000 viewers from last week's episode on November 25, which took place a day after the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
The show had eight matches overall and featured AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in the main event against Humberto Carillo, Ricochet and United States Champion Rey Mysterio.
Hour one: 2.418 million
Hour two: 2.279 million
Hour three: 1.928 million
Every hour of Raw was up significantly compared to the past two months with nearly 2.5 million tuning in for the first hour.
The show lost nearly 500,000 viewers by the time the third hour ended but was well-received on social media for having an entertaining episode.
However, there was criticism for the show not announcing matches for the TLC pay-per-view, which will take place less than two weeks from now on Sunday, December 15 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Raw brought USA Network to the third-highest ranked show on Monday night cable, losing to the NFL game and other related content on ESPN.
