WWE is a global entertainment brand much like Hollywood studios creating programming that puts smiles on people’s faces. All WWE programming features TV-PG content and storylines. WWE SmackDown has always been rated TV-PG. Other WWE programming gradually transitioned to TV-PG content and storylines, officially being recognized as TV-PG by WWE’s televisions network partners’ standards and practices departments in July 2008.
Relying on our in-house production capabilities at our technologically advanced, high definition, production facility, we produce seven hours of original weekly programming, 52 weeks per year. This programming is distributed domestically, internationally and via WWE.com. Our domestic programs are: “Raw” and “SmackDown” on USA Network; and “Total Divas” on E!. WWE’s TV programs reach nearly 13 million total viewers during the average week in the United States.
“Monday Night Raw” is a three-hour primetime program starting at 8pm ET that is broadcast live on USA Network. It is among the most-watched regularly scheduled programs on primetime cable television and anchors USA, helping make it a top-rated network.
