Interesting Note On Raw Rating


Spike TV has programmed CSI repeats for the lead in to Raw, and so far it has yielded interesting results.

Right now CSI is doing about a 2.0 rating from 8-9PM on Mondays, which is lower than Raw but much higher than normal Spike TV shows. Raw had been starting at about a 3.1 rating, and now has about a 3.6 rating for the first QH.

The increase is probably a crossover of CSI viewers and Raw watchers at the same time, then the rating usually dips a bit headed to the top of the hour. This is a new pattern for Raw, which usually increased throughout the first hour. It will be interesting to see how this continues to impact Raw ratings tonight and throughout the fall.
