WWE RAW viewership reaches new record-low due to SyFy move and Olympics competition

The February 7th 2022 episode of WWE RAW, which aired on SyFy instead of the USA Network due to Winter Olympics coverage, drew 1.387 million viewers with a 0.36 18-49 demo. RAW finished 3rd, 4th, and 5th for the night on cable with only the Olympics coverage ranking higher. Here were the hourly numbers…

Hour 1 (8 pm): 1.376 million (no commercials)
Hour 2 (9 pm): 1.449 million
Hour 3 (10 pm): 1.337 million

This week’s viewership was expected to take a hit and Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted the following…

“Raw did an 0.36, also lowest total viewers ever, but that was expected because of the station move. Number means nothing in the big picture.”

Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.com had some additional notes…

“0.40 P18-49 for the Olympics is under what Raw has done in recent weeks. Last time Raw reached 2 million viewers was Aug 23.

0.36 for Raw on Syfy is slightly better than Raw’s lowest ever on USA Network (Dec 6).”

The January 31st 2022 episode of WWE RAW, featuring fallout from the Royal Rumble PLE, drew 1.865 million viewers with a 0.47 18-49 demo. Last week’s show drew 1.766 million viewers and a 0.46 18-49 demo.
