Smackdown Live

Post-TLC Smackdown Ratings See Minor Drop Source:

In the wake of TLC, Smackdown Live dealt with the fallout from James Ellsworth’s deliberate betrayal of Dean Ambrose, but were unable to deliver a promised World Title match due to an injury suffered by AJ Styles at the PPV (don’t worry, it wasn’t his butt, just a tweaked ankle). At any rate, Smackdown’s viewership was down just a smidge this week, bringing in 2.48 million viewers and 0.78 rating in the 18-49 demographic, good enough for #2 overall among original cable programming on Tuesday night, and continuing to hold relatively steady over the past several weeks.
