‘Straight Up Steve Austin’ Debut Scores Huge for USA Network on Monday Night


Great news for “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, as the WWE Hall of Famer’s brand new series Straight Up Steve Austin debuted to a big number for the USA Network on Monday night, immediately following WWE Raw.

The show was watched by an estimated 1,211,000 viewers in its premiere, an impressive feat given the generally unfavorable 11PM ET timeslot. The show was #7 on cable television for Monday night, which means that USA dominated 4 out of the top 7 spots for the evening.

For comparison, the debut of Miz & Mrs. on the USA Network last year did 1.47 million viewers on a Tuesday night in a slightly better timeslot, following Smackdown Live, but did only 720,000 viewers for its return this July.
