– As posted before, the 9/8 edition of WWE’s Monday Night RAW scored a 3.05 cable rating wit 4.43 million viewers tuning in. The ratings pattern was clearly affected by Monday Night Football as the gains and losses didn’t change much.
The Mickie James vs. Beth Phoenix match lost 15,000 viewers while Noble vs. Regal and JBL vs. Charlie Haas gained 58,000 viewers, but neither one of those numbers are good for that part of the show. The backstage segment with Batista and JBL and the Rey Mysterio promo lost 145,000 viewers which also isn’t so good. The match with Mysterio and Bourne vs. Miz and Morrison gained 247,000 viewers and jumped to a 3.15, the highest rated segment of the show, but is still below normal for that point in the program. Kofi and Cryme Tyme vs. Rhodes, Manu and DiBiase lost 87,000 viewers which is up from what that spot in the show normally does. Santino Marella’s segment and his match with Snitsky lost 58,000 viewers. The main event with Batista vs. Chris Jericho and JBL lost 116,000 viewers and it’s extremely rare for RAW’s main event to lose viewers. The match did a 2.97 rating.
