They’ve looked into it. WWE is rapidly approaching the thirty year anniversary of Monday Night Raw. The show debuted in January 1993 and has been going pretty strong ever since. For over ten years, the show has been on the air for three hours every Monday night and that is a lot of time to fill each week. WWE now has crunched some numbers and have a better plan for how to use some of that time.
During a recent edition of After The Bell, Corey Graves talked about how WWE breaks down its ratings and viewership numbers. WWE has found that its peak audience is right around the 10pm hour, which means they are going to be focusing more on that time slot. Therefore, fans should expect more to happen from a window of about 9:50 – 10:10, though WWE also hopes to have something else taking place that keeps fans watching.
Opinion: This does make sense with the data that WWE has available and I would prefer this to having something happen at the very end of the show. No matter how you look at it though, Monday Night Raw is a long, long show and that can grind a lot of viewers down. The show isn’t likely to get any shorter, but it can be hard to sit through week to week. Maybe this is something that breathes some life into it, because the night gets rough that late.
What do you think of the plan? What changes would you make to Monday Night Raw? Let us know in the comments below.
