- Here are some stats on recent WWE TV ratings:
* RAW in September averaged a 2.79 rating with 3.92 million viewers, down from an average 2.84 rating with 3.85 million viewers in September 2013 and a 2.83 rating with 4.04 million viewers in September 2012. It's worth noting that viewers per home were way down in 2013, but have went up in 2014.
* SmackDown averaged a 1.89 rating with 2.63 million viewers in September, down from a 1.92 rating with 2.63 million viewers in 2013 and a 1.90 rating with 2.78 million viewers in September 2012. Like RAW, viewers per home would be slightly up from 2013, and while viewers are identical, staying even in viewership is a slight positive because there was a drop in cable customers.
* RAW in October averaged a 2.70 rating with 3.74 million viewers, down from a 2.81 rating with 3.92 million viewers in October 2013 and close to the 2.72 rating with 3.85 million viewers in October 2012.
* SmackDown in October averaged a 1.85 rating with 2.52 million viewers, down just a bit from a 1.86 rating and 2.58 million viewers in 2013 and a 1.90 rating with 2.68 million viewers in October 2012.
* RAW in November of this year averaged a 2.84 rating with 3.99 million viewers, up a bit from the 2.79 rating with 3.89 million viewers in November 2013 and the 2.78 rating with 4.00 million viewers for the same period in 2012.
* SmackDown in November averaged a 2.00 rating with 2.77 million viewers, compared to a 1.98 rating with 2.81 million viewers in November 2013 and a 1.80 rating with 2.58 million viewers in 2012.
