The month of September wasn’t the best for WWE when it comes to TV ratings and so far the month of October has only made things worse.
As we noted before, the final episode of Raw in September did the lowest ratings in the Show’s history and the ratings for the first episode of October sunk even further.
And this trend has now continued with SmackDown as this week’s episode of the Blue Branded show has also made some new records of historic low ratings.
This week’s SmackDown featuring a match between Daniel Bryan and Shelton Benjamin and a closing segment between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair drew a total of 2.095 million viewers
This is down 4.47% from last week’s episode of the show which had AJ Styles and Samoa Joe in the main event and had drawn 2.193 million viewers
This is the third worst rating for the Blue Branded Show since it moved to Tuesday night and started airing live and the worst rating the show has done since the July 3rd episode.
SmackDown was ranked #10 in cable viewership for the night, and it found itself behind shows like MLB Wild Card on ESPN, Hannity, Rachel Maddow, Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Ingraham Angle, Last Word, The Five, The Story and Special Report.
While SmackDown is generally praised by the audience as a better show than Raw, the ratings for it continue to decline. What do you think is the reason for this continuous sink? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section
