On a night where the WrestleMania main event picture officially became a little bit muddier with the addition of Charlotte Flair to the mix, Raw ratings fell for the second straight week and the show averaged the exact same number as it did the Monday prior to the Royal Rumble.

This week's episode averaged 2.462 million viewers, down two percent from last week's total. Year-over-year, Raw was down over 20 percent this week -- which is right around the recent average.

Raw had a similar ratings pattern as last week with a steady decline throughout the night. Despite the show-long storyline of Becky Lynch answering an ultimatum from Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, Raw still lost 16 percent of its opening hour audience by the end of hour three.

It was a stronger-than-usual night for the news shows, with Raw finishing sixth in terms of total cable viewers. Raw did top the 18-49 demo with an average rating of 0.84.

The hourly viewership for last night's Raw was:

Hour one: 2.689 million
Hour two: 2.445 million
Hour three: 2.252 million

Good. They deserve it for putting on such a bad show. I hope it keeps going down next week.

That line puts it into perspective for me.

You can't expect an audience to stick around for THREE HOURS for that. You just can't.
