It does appear now that live vs. tape makes a difference with Raw, given last week’s unusually low number and this week being back to normal levels as Raw did 4.03 million viewers.
It beat an NBA playoff game head-to-head that did 3.22 million viewers, but was second for the night behind the late NBA playoff game that did 4.07 million viewers. There was a third hour drop, but that isn’t unusual either.
8 p.m. 4.11 million viewers
9 p.m. 4.14 million viewers
10 p.m. 3.87 million viewers
