Monday Night Raw is the longest-running, weekly episodic program in U.S. primetime TV history and is the most-watched, regularly scheduled programs on cable, airing live every Monday night on USA Network. Each week, it is rated one of the most socially active shows on cable television and continues to be a “must-stop” for celebrities to reach WWE’s TV audience and its more than 425 million social media followers.”
Larry the Cable Guy will join a slew of “celebrity” special guests featured on “Monday Night Raw” in the past couple of months. Most recently, on the Nov. 17 “Monday Night Raw,” the “Grumpy Cat” Internet meme graced the WWE Universe with its mere presence.
I’m personally a big fan of his cousin, Larry the Turn off the Cable Guy.
