The two hours of RAW were the #3 and #4 shows of the week, behind the Vikings v. Texans game at a 6.1 rating and NASCAR at a 4.1 rating. In the 18-34 demographic, neither hour made the top 10 due to college football and three episodes of Family Guy. Although the show did show strength among viewers over 35, as it placed in #4 and #5.
