Smackdown Live

Smackdown Live Jumps To Ratings High

Another strong show out of WWE’s blue brand, featuring what will likely be the final climax of James Ellsworth’s stay in the main event, saw viewership rise significantly, hitting a six-week high. Overall, the show brought in 2.64 million viewers and a 0.88 rating in the 18-49 demographic, good enough for second place among Tuesday night original cable programming. That viewership is actually only 200k behind what the third hour of Raw did on Monday night, helping make this week’s show the most-watched episode since the 900th episode celebration the week before Survivor Series. In more good news, next week’s final Smackdown Live of the year is currently set to feature three title matches, including AJ Styles defending the World Title against Dolph Ziggler, so Smackdown might actually manage to escape an expected holiday slump through the magic of some very strong shows!
