The numbers for lats night’s episode for SmackDown Live are in, and this week’s episode, which featured all of the Suvivor Series fallout, AJ Styles destroying one of The Singh Brother, and craziness between Kevin Owens and the rest o the SmackDown Live locker room in light of their actions at Sunday’s Summer Slam, drew 2.662 million viewers. This is up 2% from last week’s 2.607 million viewers. SmackDown Live featured Natalya vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair plus the debut of The Bludgeon Brothers.
Not a great number for the blue brand coming off of one of WWE’s “Big Four PPVs” of the year. Let’s hope that the unofficial beginning of the Road to WrestleMania kicking off will get the audience paying attention once more.
SmackDown Live was #4 in viewership for this week on cable, falling behind Curse of Oak Island, Hannity, and Tucker Carlson. SmackDown Live was #1 in the 18-49 demographic. In the coveted 18-49 demographic, SmackSDown Live garnered a .83 cable rating for the night; this is up slightly from the .82 rating in the same demographic last week.
