WWE Monday Night RAW Rating From November 22nd, 2010
Fresh off of the heels of one of World Wrestling Entertainment‘s biggest pay-per-view events of the year, Survivor Series, many were expecting a fairly high rating number for WWE‘s flagship telecast, Monday Night RAW. Especially following news of John Cena, quite possibly their biggest superstar, being fired from the company.
However, those that did tune in got a little treat as a brand new WWE Champion was crowned during the evening with The Miz cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase title opportunity versus “The Viper” Randy Orton — following his main event match against the leader of The Nexus, Wade Barrett.
According to several online reports that have surfaced this evening, this past Monday’s edition of RAW drew a 3.3 rating with 4,856,000 viewers, based on hours of 3.26 and 3.34. The number is up slightly from last week’s special three-hour, “Old School” edition of Monday Night RAW, which did a 3.1 for the three-hour period with 4,527,000 viewers.
It should be interesting to see if World Wrestling Entertainment can sustain another high rating going forward into next week, which is yet another three-hour edition of RAW featuring a King Of The Ring tournament with participants also from the Friday Night SmackDown roster.
With several individuals backstage second guessing themselves after putting the strap around the waist of “The Apex Predator” following low ratings after Night Of Champions earlier this year, there will be an enormous amount of pressure on The Miz following his controversial win on last night’s episode.
