USA Network adds 2 hour edited Raw as lead-in to Tough Enough


The USA Network website is listing a two hour version of Monday Night Raw airing on Tuesday at 6PM to serve as the lead in for the new episode of Tough Enough.

Ratings for the first episode of the new season of Tough Enough were very disappointing, getting just over 1.2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating in the much sought-after 18-49 demographic.

The last season of Tough Enough in 2011 with Steve Austin as the host used to draw around 2.5 million viewers per episode when it served as the lead in to Monday Night Raw.

The USA Network schedule on the website only lists programs for a week in advance so it’s not known if this will be a recurring thing or just a one time deal.
