USA Network Reportedly ‘Furious’ Over WWE RAW Ratings, Wants A More ‘Adult’ Show
WWE RAW viewership hit a record low this week and non-surprisingly the USA Network isn’t happy with the show’s declining ratings. However, the demand for a different feeling show might surprise you.
According to TalkSport, the USA Network is furious about the record-low viewership and declining ratings. It’s said that the network wants “more adult content … not sexy adult, but dark and violent adult.” It’s said that WWE is looking to use the upcoming Royal Rumble as a reset for the company creatively.
This week’s RAW drew only 1.526 million viewers across its three hours. This is down significantly from the previous week, which had 1.736 million tune in. It’s a new low for the show, and a far cry from the 2.437 million that tuned in on Feb. 17 earlier this year.
