WWE Raw helps USA Network take number one spot in 2014

USA Network issued a press release announcing that it will finish the year as the most watched ad-supported cable entertainment network for an unprecedented 9th consecutive year, thanks in part to “the powerhouse” Monday Night Raw.

Raw was listed as the most-watched, regularly scheduled program on cable, 52 weeks a year, and it has delivered 4.68MM total viewers P2+, 2.15MM P25-54, and 2.08MM P18-49, making USA #1 Monday nights in 2014 for all three categories among cable entertainment networks. RAW made USA the #1 entertainment network in all of television Monday nights for M18-34.

Despite knowing that WWE helps the network achieve big numbers, USA’s parent company NBC Universal still didn’t think WWE was worth that much as evident in the contract negotiations between the two earlier this year.
