RAW Rating & Other Ratings News, SNME Update, More News

The 1/23 edition of WWE RAW drew a final and very impressive 4.5 cable rating with a 6.7 share. The first hour scored a 4.5 rating, while the second scored a 4.5 rating as well. This is one of the highest ratings RAW has scored since the 2004 Draft Lottery special in March (with the exception of the Eddie Guerrero tribute show which did a high 4.5 rating for obvious reasons). This is great news for WWE, especially heading into the Royal Rumble PPV this Sunday.

The 1/21 edition of WWE A.M. RAW drew a final 0.7 cable rating with a 1.8 share.

As reported earlier, the 1/20 edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown drew a final 2.9 broadcast rating with a 4.8 share. This was down from last week's record-setting 3.2 rating for the new Friday timeslot.
