Overrun - 3.99 rating / 5.72 million <-- overrun = 13 minutes long, no commercials (obviously)

Conclusion: I feel sorry for American's that watch TV live... and it's pretty evident why certain quarters did not do as well (ie Q10).

Based on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmDYF8g3iNQ

How long does an average 2 hour episode of Raw last in USA? Cause I think Canada might be diff lengths. Canada starts 15 mins later than USA, and I'm wondering if Canada just has less commercials as well. Cause average Raw lasts 2 hours 10 mins in Canada, but commercial breaks seem to last like 3 minutes.

But WWE is probably the worst at commercial breaks of all shows on TV(except football,who has a commercial break every 2 minutes it seems like lol).

Why can't they just have consistent commercial breaks. No commercials during matches either.

It sucks watching it on TV and then having them come back from a commercial just to see a backstage segment that's useless,a 2-3 min video package for something random, then the "up next" screen and back to more commercials.
