Like Raw, NXT, and Dynamite, SmackDown lost viewers but it was only slightly and it was against stiff competition from the NFL Draft. Average viewers for the show came in around 1.9 million in the overnights and held steady in the key 18-34 and 18-49 demographics. The number will probably turn out to be flat when the viewership is adjusted later this week.
SmackDown viewership has held relatively steady for the past six-to-nine months usually falling in the 1.9 to 2.1 million range. This trend is interesting considering that every other major wrestling show has wild swings up and down. This is something that might be worth further discussion.
