To the surprise of nobody, the National Basketball Association playoffs led to Raw doing the second lowest number in its modern history, averaging 2.53 million viewers.

Why did Monday Night Raw do so poorly in the ratings?

RAW faced some stiff competition on Monday night, with game five of the NBA Finals drawing a staggering 24.446 million viewers.

In case you didn't know.

While the NBA Finals game certainly had an impact on WWE's ratings, it's interesting to note how the first hour viewership this week was down nearly 400,000 viewers versus last week's show.

Raw ranked #2 for the night among cable originals, behind Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta (1.27 demo rating, 2.608 million viewers).

Raw's numbers should be up significantly from now until September, when football season begins. The fifth game of the National Basketball Association finals began during the second hour or Raw and ended with the Golden State Warriors defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 and winning the series 4-1. WWE couldn't be happier to have the NBA finally going away for a long time as there's nothing they can do to contend with the basketball.

Many fans felt that there was nothing of value on the show aside from the Lesnar-Joe segment and the Raw Tag Team Championship match and have voiced similar opinions about the show even when they didn't have other programs to compete against.
