The PG-Era Is Over, WWE RAW Returning To TV-14 Rating

The PG-Era Is Over, WWE RAW Returning To TV-14 Rating

Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast revealed today on Twitter that the "PG era" is over for WWE Monday Night RAW on USA Network.

Starting next week the 3-hour broadcast will revert back to a TV-14 rating, Zarian tweeted, "Starting July 18th WWE Raw will have a TV-14 rating moving forward on USA Network. The PG Era is over."

WWE originally introduced TV-14 programming in 1997 during the height of the Monday Night War against WCW, but in 2008 the brand moved to a PG output which turned off many viewers at the time but introduced many new ones in a younger demographic. The PG Era at its peak was led by John Cena who became a poster star for the child-friendly rating.

The TV-14 rating now allows for edgier content and adult storylines.


Plans have changed and WWE RAW will not be a TV-14 show this coming Monday but that doesn't mean it will not happen in the future. Andrew Zarian reports that a memo was sent out within USA Network this morning about the TV rating changing to TV-14 but apparently it was sent out prematurely before finalization.
