Unless my memory fails me, when contract talks between WWF & USA came up (& WWF was still riding the tail-end of the ratings boom), didnt Vince want them to stop pre-empting RAW for the dog show and USA refused?

Y!: # 3 Posted on 14.2.05 1839.55 Reposted on: 14.2.12 1839.57 The dog show never got higher ratings than wrestling. It just drew higher advertising revenue. I actually liked the dog show, in the same weird way I like telethons.

It is a contest, after all.

They'd certainly never do that for the rasslin.

It allows them to plug their shows and programming to new viewers that may actually come back. It's all about the money.

She said she wanted to watch it, but I expressed my early childhood "wrestling has been pre-empted" trauma. It runs quite deep. "Noooooooooooo!!!"
