WWE Raw on Monday, June 24 scored a 2.90 rating, down five percent from mid-3.0 ratings the past two weeks.

Against the NHL Stanley Cup Finals, Raw dropped two-tenths of a rating in the key male and adult demographics compared to last week's post-Payback episode. Also, Raw dropped five-tenths of a rating in teen males 12-17.

- Raw averaged 3.98 million viewers, down four percent from last week's 4.15 million viewers following Payback.

Hourly Break Down: 3.743 million first hour viewers (second-fewest of the year), a jump to 4.287 million second hour viewers, and a drop to 3.910 million third hour viewers vs. the climax of the Stanley Cup Finals.

- On cable TV Monday night, Raw ranked #2 in overall viewers behind "Major Crimes" on TNT, but ranked #1 in male demos (since the NHL game was on broadcast TV). Raw slipped to #4 among teen males.

Raw's final hour, which usually draws a strong adult male audience, appears to have been impacted by CBS scoring a hit with the premiere of "Under the Dome," which drew 13.5 million viewers and skewed heavily male.

- One year ago this week, Raw scored a 3.28 rating (vs. 2.90 this week) and the demos were up about five-tenths of a rating compared to this year's episode.
