— The return of Roman Reigns and perhaps the birthday celebration for Ric Flair powered Raw to its most watched episode in six months with an overall average viewership of 2.922 million. This is the best number for Raw since August 20 when the show drew 3.11 million.
— On the night, Raw was third overall in total viewership – and just barely – trailing Tucker Carlson Tonight (2.964) and Rachel Maddow Show (2.959). In the key 18-49 demographic, Raw was #1 for each of its three hours. The exact hourly numbers are below:
* Hour 1 – 3.167 million
