USA Network drops Raw’s three hour over run

Nov 8, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

For years now Raw has been a 3 hour show that often goes longer when the show runs beyond its scheduled time, but it looks like big changes are coming for the red brand.

Raw will be ending right at 11 PM EST instead of going over its scheduled time, starting with next week’s episode.

Overruns for Raw will be eliminated for the foreseeable future, and a source indicated that this was a decision made by USA Network.

With Raw being a live show the overrun gives the company some room to work with if a segment goes too long, but it seems that WWE will have to be a little more careful with how they use their 3 hour block moving forward.

    Good. Three hours should be more than enough.

  2. @Tollefaan – It should be but they’d rather waste time on entrances we’ve seen a thousand times & ridiculously long and boring matches that would accomplish the same thing if they were only a couple of mins long.

    Don’t forget repeated recaps of things you already watched, usually at the beginning of that very show. Maybe they can save some time now that their main championship will no longer be appearing.
