The September 19 edition of Monday Night Raw saw the lowest viewership in the new “Triple H era” of World Wrestling Entertainment, totaling only 1,593,000 viewers. It’s important to note that this was against tough competition in the form of the NFL, as a football doubleheader put a dent in WWE’s newfound momentum. However, the WWE Raw ratings for the September 26 episode told a different story. Following the aforementioned low numbers, Raw bounced back, even against steep competition in the form of football. Let’s take a deeper dive into the ratings, viewership, and demo.

WWE Ratings – Raw Rating and Viewership Data for September 26, 2022
The September 26 episode of Monday Night Raw saw an average of 1.67 million viewers across the three-hour program; this is a 5 percent increase from the week prior. In terms of demos, the 0.45 rating among those aged 18 to 49 remained unchanged. This growth can be attributed to the level of talent involved on the show, including a singles bout between Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins, in addition to a competitive main event pitting Matt Riddle against Damian Priest. See a more detailed breakdown of Raw’s ratings across three hours below:
- Hour 1: 1.73 million / 0.45
- Hour 2: 1.75 million / 0.47
- Hour 3: 1.54 million / 0.43
While the numbers for the latest episode of Raw are strong, Monday night wasn’t nearly as strong as this past Friday. The most recent edition of SmackDown garnered its largest audience since 2020, averaging 2.54 million viewers, in addition to a 0.63 demo rating among 18-49-year-olds. Will Raw’s growth continue amidst a competitive TV landscape? Only time will tell.
