WWE Raw And USA Network

If it’s true that it’s USA Network’s call for Raw being 3 hours, can’t the WWE simply use that to deflect any criticism they would get from the network if they complain about ratings? I.E.-"Well, you guys insist that the show should be 3 hours instead of 2, even though all the evidence points to fans tuning out in the first 1-2 hours after they got their fill, so…."

​Yeah, Vince has a lot of balls, but USA is paying them $160 million a year to produce five hours of TV a week, so I’m pretty sure any criticism levied by Bonnie Hammer is immediately answered with "I understand, we’ll do our best to fix it" whenever it’s offered.
