    That 2.8 during the 1st hour just goes to show that there’s a lot of people that still aren’t used to the 3 hour format. Hopefully that picks up and evens out in time with the rest of the show. I personally am LOVING the extra hour because it is giving more time for the action in the ring. The 3 big matches last night were awesome because they were given enough time to tell the story. Instead of being short on time and forced to have a 3 or 4 minute main event like Raw has been notorious for doing for years now. I’m just glad that they aren’t filling the extra time with crappy comedy sketches and even more interview time. I said from the start that if they added more wrestling on their wrestling show that it would succeed. Kind of reminds me of Nitro before it got all watered down. WCW always had great wrestling matches on their TV broadcasts. Even back in the day on the Saturday evening show that was on TBS for years and years. Good job WWE! WOW, I haven’t had a good reason to say that for quite some time, but if they keep this format going I guarantee that their ratings are going to get even better.

      What show are you watching? They BARELY added more wrestling. How can you still not find time to our Ryder, McIntyre, or even Kidd and unfortunately Tensai seeing as they have an apparent feud. They’ve used that extra time to talk bout tout, trip and Brock, and whatever else they could fill the spots with without showing more wrestling.
