UPDATE: According to Wrestlingobserver.com, the final rating for Monday’s Raw was a 3.1, which is the best number since August 27th. The rating is looked at as a very positive one, due to the BSC Championship game being the second most watched show in the history of cable television.

The show did hours of 4,290,000, 4,320,000 and 4,650,000. Not only did the show’s rating score well, but also Raw did so against the BCS National Championship game, which drew 26.3 million viewers. Here is the breakdown of how Raw has performed in the three-hour era…
