Just imagine how many people would have watched WWE SmackDown if they knew the “fist set” or better yet the Ovaltron were rolled out! We were promised a “classic” SmackDown after all.
Relax! We’re kidding! Although it would’ve been awesome to see the old sets rolled out.
SmackDown saw a 12% increase in viewers from last Friday’s show netting an average of 2.1 million viewers. The show also won the night in the 18-34 and 18-49 demographics.
The blue show, which has been anchored by the Roman Reigns storyline, has been consistently in the 1.8 – 2.2 million viewers range for nearly a year now. Perhaps it’s time to recognize that SmackDown might be the flagship show of WWE.
