Big SD!/MyNetworkTV.com Debut Show, More On RAW Rating
Already announced for the debut of WWE programming on MyNetworkTV is a WrestleMania 24 special, scheduled for October 2nd.
Also on October 2nd will be a WWE Diva Themed edition of “Magic’s Biggest Secret’s Finally Revealed.”
Smackdown debuts on the network on October 3rd and will be headlined by WWE Champion HHH vs. ECW Champion Matt Hardy vs. World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho.
Every match on the debut show will be a “Champion vs. Champion” match.
Apparently the RAW rating ended up being rounded down to a 2.6, not a 2.7 as reported earlier. The show didn’t have a single quarter hour that did a 3.0 or above, as the highest rated segment was a 2.9 at 10:15PM ET. The hourly ratings were 2.5 and 2.7. The rating was obviously impacted some by Monday Night Football which did a monster 13.3 rating, the highest rating ever for ESPN.
