Tuesday’s edition of WWE SmackDown Live from Atlanta, Georgia at the State Farm Arena averaged 2.064 million viewers, which is up from 2.061 million the previous week, according to ShowbuzzDaily.
The same SmackDown episode last year drew 2.281 million viewers. This was the post-show for the Clash of Champions pay-per-view event.
The episode was expected to increase in viewership just like Monday’s episode of RAW did. RAW did have big competition in the way of the NFL regular-season game on ESPN.
The show had to go up against Hannity that did 3.280 million viewers, Rachel Maddow Show with 2.695 and Tucker Carlson Tonight that drew 3.276. Also, the show didn’t go up against any big sports-related competition.
Matches that took place on this show include The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) vs. Randy Orton & The Revival (Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson) in a six-man tag team match, Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks, and Heavy Machinery (Otis & Tucker) vs. The B-Team (Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel).

WWE will attempt to increase viewership with next week’s episode, which should be interesting to see what number it pulls in.
