FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN AUDIENCE BUCKS USUAL TAPED SHOW TREND

By Dave Scherer on 2019-11-09 12:05:00

Last night's Preliminary Broadcast National ratings showed Smackdown up again.  They did 2,618,000 overnight viewers, up from last week's 2,543,000 overnight viewers.  

Hour one did 2,725,000 viewers while hour two did 2,510,000.  That is the third best number that they have done since moving to FOX.  It also bucked the usual trend of audience erosion for a taped broadcast.

Date Audience Number
10/4/19 3,888,000
10/11/19 2,899,000
10/18/19 2,418,000
10/25/19* 888,000
11/2/19 2,543,000
11/2/19 2,618,000

*Friday Night Smackdown aired on FS1 as FOX was airing World Series coverage.
