WWE Raw ratings: WWE had a lot of work to do over this holiday episode of Raw after the disaster in the ratings last week.
AEW Dynamite beat Raw last week and that would have hurt Vince McMahon. There were talks of some big decisions being taken to arrest the slide in ratings and that should have started on this week’s show.
TLC 2020 was a bit of a hit and we had Randy Orton make a statement but he was met with Alexa Bliss.
Charlotte Flair’s return at TLC was a big talking point and the latest Grand Slam winner was also to feature on the show.
Drew McIntyre retained his title after some triple threat madness at TLC and the champion teamed up with a couple of big names to take on rivals.
The ratings did improve after this week’s show but here are the results first.

WWE Raw ratings
All the eyes were on the ratings and viewership numbers from WWE Raw this week. The record low was stopped to an extent with an 11% increase in viewership numbers.
The fallout from TLC would have helped, especially with the Orton vs Fiend match. Showbuzz Daily confirmed that Raw drew in an average of 1.69million viewers on the USA Network. This was greater than the 1.53m that Raw got last week.
The first hour of Raw brought in 1.84m viewers, the second hour got 1.70m viewers and the final hour brought in 1.53m fans.
The 18-49 demo also saw a rise in the numbers with 0.53, which was up from the 0.41 it achieved last week.
