The USA network appears to have come up with the 247 championship

Apparently the network have been sending ideas to the WWE to improve the third hour which was at one point in time highly rated and this was the best idea in the bunch.

Have fun with this guys.

Not to be that guy, but is that really a "credible" source?

Here's my idea: Get rid of the third hour. The show doesn't need to be on that long, especially if WWE does fuck all with that time

Order. Unity. Obedience. We taught the galaxy these things long ago, and we will do so again.

Should have known that the modern WWE can't come up with such a cool concept

This has been on Reddit all morning I think it's legit. (Not the source, but the info)

I'm not from the states, but how is USA as a channel? Everything I read suggests USA needs RAW more than RAW needs USA.

It absolutely does. USA gets its best ratings with wrestling and from reruns of syndicated shows from different networks. They have a few of their own shows, but I don't think they're making them a fortune. For example, before RAW you see Modern Family on. That's big programming for them.

It's a terrible channel and Raw and SDL are their highest rated shows, but given how much they pay the WWE they would arguably be better off with lower rated shows that cost much less to produce. Why pay $2M an episode for Raw's 2.5M viewers when you can pay $100K per episode for Mz and Mrs' 1.8M viewers?

Not defending anything, but nobody is watching Miz and Mrz without Smackdown before it. I'd be willing to say over half their viewers are just rollover from SDL. I myself being one of those viewers :]

If the story is true, we at least know that the USA network cares about the ratings and quality and if they are the only ones that can get through to Vince then so be it.
