Backstage News on WWE Starrcade, WWE RAW Viewership Back Under 3 Million

- Monday's WWE RAW drew 2.759 million viewers. This is down from last week's 3.074 million viewers. RAW featured new WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns advertised ahead of time. Viewership was delayed this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

For this week's show, the first hour drew 2.956 million viewers, the second hour drew 2.720 million viewers and the final hour drew 2.601 million viewers.

RAW was #5 for the night in viewership, behind the NFL on ESPN, Tucker Carlson, Rachel Maddow and Hannity. RAW was #3 in the 18-49 demographic, behind the NFL and Love & Hip-Hop. The NFL drew just over 8 million viewers this week, down from what they usually draw.

- WWE officials are already talking about doing another Starrcade live event in 2018, according to PWInsider. Saturday's special live event in Greensboro, NC was a success as there was a huge bump from the previous live event in Greensboro. The show was written by WWE Hall of Famer Michael "PS" Hayes, who was the one that pitched the revival of the name back in June of this year. Vince McMahon ended up approving the event and it was announced a few months later. There are no plans for the event to air on the WWE Network. The event was never meant to be a TV program and was produced as a standard live event. WWE did film Starrcade with several cameras, as they often do at live events, so there is footage if they decide to air it at a later date.
