I was thinking more along the lines when the ratings tanked, TNT cut it back to two hours and ultimately yanked it's timeslot 6 years ago contributing to the company going out of business and being sold to WWE. More along the lines of that, rather then the small 3 year window in the mid to late 90's you're thinking of.

>Just ask TNT when they ran 3 hours of WCW Monday Nitro several years ago.... um... never mind.

You mean when it was the number one rated program, only finally dethroned by RAW on USA?

The way USA network views it, it's 3 hours of guaranteed top 10 cable ratings each week. I think this is the last thing the WWE needs however.

Heh, awesome. Just what the cable TV world was clamoring for. Three hours of professional wrestling is a can't lose scenario. Just ask TNT when they ran 3 hours of WCW Monday Nitro several years ago.... um... never mind. "Characters Welcome", indeed.

There's talk of RAW going to three hours every week.

Hmmm, a three hour edition of WWE Raw. Normally it's two hours. Would those three hours in the top 10 be from the incredibly well thought out Chris "double homicide/suicide" Benoit's tribute show? Yikes.

I'm curious what the actual numbers were; specifically, how close was #2 to #1 (I would hope The Closer had significantly higher ratings than some awards show)
