This week's WWE RAW drew a 2.9 cable rating, with 4,008,000 viewers. That is down from last week's 3.1 cable rating, with 4,438,000 viewers. The show did a 2.96 (3.0) in hour one and dropped to a very low 2.77 (2.8) in hour two. That translates to a loss of about 176,000 viewers.
The BCS Championship game on ESPN did a 16.22 cable rating, with 24,214,000 viewers. Although that may seem high, this was down about 15% from last year's game. The end of the game was also a blowout so fans likely would have tuned back into the second hour of RAW if they wanted to.
