There is concern about another big decline in viewership since the 2020 Labor Day RAW drew 1.725 million viewers compared to the 2.507 million viewers for the 2019 Labor Day RAW. The first RAW during football season in 2019 fell to 2.130 million viewers which was a 15% drop from the previous week. A similar drop for this year would be 1.466 million viewers and a new record-low viewership for RAW. The current record-low viewership for RAW was on July 13th with 1.561 million viewers.
Labor Day Raw 2019 vs. 2020 comparisons. Drops are 31% in viewers, 42% in 18-49 and 58% in 18-34.
