SmackDown continued to improve its viewership and saw another small increase in the ratings this week after recovering from the surprisingly low viewership for the F1S episode.
This week’s episode of SmackDown featuring the Fiend’s return to the brand and a main event between Baron Corbin and Roman Reigns drew a total of 2.617 million.
This is a 3.9% increase from last week’s episode of the show which featured the NXT invasion with a highly praised main event between Daniel Bryan and Adam Cole and had drawn 2.520 million viewers.
The first hour of the show drew 2.725 million viewers but the second hour saw a significant 8% drop in the ratings with 2.510 million viewers which might be a concerning news for the WWE officials.
Compared to this week’s episode of the show, last week’s episode of the Blue Brand had bounced back from the 888,000 viewers it did while being broadcasted from F1S.
The episode of Raw which broadcasted during the same week and featured the follow up from the Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia had also seen a slight increase in the viewership of the show.
The show featuring a main event match between Adam Cole and Seth Rollins for the NXT Championship had drawn an average of 2.135 million viewers which was an increase from the 2.133 million viewers of the previous week.
