Why Doesn't USA Show Reruns Of Raw?

  1. Just something that occurred to me - since Raw gets such good ratings for the USA Network and is supposed to be their best rated show and one of the top rated shows on Cable, why doesn't USA show reruns of Raw? Come to think of it, why don't they show Raw episodes throughout the entire week if WWE gets such good ratings? Yesterday, they showed nothing but NCSI all day long, and then Law and Order throughout the night and morning. Why not the same treatment with Raw? One reason might be that it's supposed to seen as a live show, but I think that's lame because that doesn't/shouldn't matter to the viewer.
     
  2. They do have AM Raw, but it's shorten to one hour. I don't know, they don't show reruns of Smackdown on SyFy either, and they never did it for NXT nor ECW. It could just be Vince's idea, but it would be a good idea for the USA Network to do reruns of the full three hours, although you would haave to cut out a few shows for that as well.
     
  3. If there were reruns, then people might decide to miss it live and see it later, so maybe Vince feels they'd make sure to watch it if it's only on once (meaning an increase in ratings)?
     
  4. That's what I think. Since RAW is live people might not feel inclined to watch it live if there were reruns
     
  5. It would make sense. The AM Raw is used more of a tease, it shows you a taste of what you missed, so I guess if people watch that they'll feel left out of the main show and watch the main Raw live. Then again it is only one hour as oppose to three hours so that could also work against him. As for the show in it's own, it is a smart move to keep it once for ratings. If it's more spread out then people will miss it and try less to watch it, so e'll get even more of a drop then he already has now.
     
  6. Yup, I believe they'd lose ratings.
