Monday’s edition of RAW was down marginally from last week’s show drawing 4.19 million viewers, but with the lack of pre-season football this week they were able to win out the 18-49 demo in all three top spots, something that they haven’t done for quite some time. They kept the pattern of increasing viewership going strong in the 18-49 demo, but the second hour won out in overall viewership. The first hour drew 4.129 million viewers (a 1.4 in the 18-49 demo, behind the second hour). The second hour drew 4.291 million viewers (a 1.5 in the 18-49 demo, behind the last hour). The third and final hour drew 4.151 million viewers (a 1.6 in the 18-49 demo, which won out the night). I would be very happy with this week’s rating if I were the WWE, as it was up from most editions of RAW over the past few weeks and they won out the night.
Free Ted DiBiase Jr. DVD
IVP Videos as a part of their weekly free/0.25$ DVD specials, has the best of Ted DiBiase Jr. up for free download right now, or for 0.25$ on DVD. I guess this special is commemorating…DiBiase quitting his job with the WWE? Regardless, you can download the set for free here or buy the 0.25$ DVD here. This DVD also features an additional bonus match in Tajiri versus Keiji Mutoh. So if you have been missing DiBiase on TV, well you can watch him have a 12 minute match with Kotaro Suzuki as a consolation.
This Sunday we will be covering RAW, more on the ratings, Night of Champions direction, a preview of New Japan Destruction, NXT with most likely nothing as good as Cesaro/Zayn, iMPACT and more!
