As reported earlier, the 10/9 three hour edition of WWE Raw Family Reunion drew a final 3.8 cable rating with a 6 share. While this number is up from last week's 3.6 number, when examining the hours it actually paints an even more positive picture for WWE. The first hour of the show drew a 3.2 rating, the second hour drew a 4.2 rating and the final hour drew a 4.0 rating. Basing the numbers strictly on Raw's normal timeslot (9-11pm ET for two hours), the show actually did a 4.1 cable rating.

On a side note, Monday Night Football on ESPN drew a 10.3 cable rating. That is up from last week's 10.2 rating and was the fourth highest rating in ESPN's history. While it could be said that high ratings for Monday Night Football in the last few weeks has hurt Raw, that certainly was not the case this past Monday night as Raw scored its highest number in months for the last two hours of the show.

The 10/7 edition of WWE A.M. Raw drew a final 0.9 cable rating with a 3.8 share.

The 10/6 edition of WWE Friday Night Smackdown drew a final 2.4 broadcast rating with a 4 share. That was down from last week's 2.5 rating. It should be noted that most, if not all shows on the new CW Network have seen a huge decrease in ratings and Smackdown is the only show holding up well.
