The announcement credited WWE RAW for some of the success, noting that RAW was the #1 cable entertainment show on Mondays in 2019, and the #1 most-social primetime series in all of TV.
The announcement also mentioned the success of “Straight Up Steve Austin” with WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin, and “Miz & Mrs.” with The Miz and Maryse.

Additionally on USA, Temptation Island sizzled as the network’s #1 New Series (Scripted or Unscripted) and Miz & Mrs did an absolutely awesome job as its #1 Returning Unscripted series. Treadstone crushed as USA’s #1 New Drama, while Queen of the South was its #1 Returning Drama.
USA readies itself for another standout year, kicking off with the debut of The Biggest Loser on January 28 and the return of Miz & Mrs on January 29. February 6 will see the premiere of Sam Esmail’s Briarpatch, as well as a new story of critically-acclaimed thriller The Sinner.
The wins solidified USA as a #1 Network in Prime for 14 consecutive years.
