For Raw, the broadcast averaged 2.911 million viewers, down from 3.314 million last week. This marks the first time since the New Era began, and fourth time in 2016 overall,¬†that Monday’s live show dropped below the 3 million average viewer mark.
As for Smackdown, the average viewership last night was 2.455 million. This is down from 2.681 million from last week.
There seems to be a sloping trend as weeks go by. And it makes sense, since the brand split and kick off of #New Era were significant occurrences and nothing¬†has happened since then¬†to warrant that level of interest. The last few weeks have served only to set a stage for the coming Summerslam show, which is a stacked card that should do well.
The week after Summerslam ought to bring numbers back up as the show deals with fallout that will generate interest.
