The June 17, 2013 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw did a 3.05 rating and drew 4.15 million viewers on USA Network.

Via Dave Meltzer's WrestlingObserver.com Newsletter:

The rating was identical to the prior week but viewers were up 4% due to more viewers per home. It’s neither good nor bad, as viewers were up slightly, but they should be up the day after a noteworthy PPV.

Raw was the most watched show on cable but the third highest rated. The NHL Stanley Cup finals on NBC Sports did a 4.15 rating and 4.00 million viewers, because NBC Sports is in significantly less homes than USA. Major Crimes on TNT also did slightly less viewers but a slightly higher rating, but that show dropped more than 20% of its audience from week one. The show was up in key demos with a 2.4 in Male teens (up 33%), 2.3 in Males 18-49 (up 5%), 1.4 in Female teens (up 17%) and 1.1 in Women 18-49 (up 10%). The audience was 65.5% male, which is one of the lowest of the year, so female viewership in comparison was up.
