WWE RAW Ratings: Viewership for 04/12/23 episode CONFIRMED

Last updated

The latest viewership numbers for WWE RAW on December 4th, 2023, indicate a return to more typical levels following a notable spike the previous week.

According to data from WrestleNomics, the episode attracted an average of 1.533 million viewers on the USA Network. This figure marks a decrease from the 1.884 million viewers who tuned in the week before.

WWE RAW: Demographic Details and Competition Factors

In the key demographic of 18-49, Raw scored an average rating of 0.49. This is a drop from the 0.65 rating achieved in the prior week.

A significant factor in this decline was the competition from a major NFL game broadcast across ABC, ESPN, and ESPN 2, which likely siphoned off a portion of Raw’s audience.

WWE RAW: Contextualising the Decline

The decrease in viewership was somewhat anticipated. The previous week’s episode was a special post-Survivor Series edition of Raw, featuring a commercial-free first hour and a much-anticipated promo by CM Punk, his first since returning to WWE.

Highlights of the Latest Episode

Despite the dip in ratings, the December 4th episode of Raw was not without its highlights. The show featured significant matches, including WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins going up against Jey Uso and Drew McIntyre facing Sami Zayn.
