Last week’s episode of SmackDown featured the 25th-anniversary celebration of Triple H’s in-ring debut for the company, however, it didn’t manage to attract the audience and the show saw another decline in viewership numbers.
The episode of the Blue Branded Show featuring the return of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Vince McMahon drew a total of 2.005 million viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.
This is an 8.3% decline from the previous episode of the show which had drawn 2.187 million viewers. This number is also down from the overnight viewership released on Saturday morning which was counted at 2.014 million viewers.
The episode managed to draw a 0.5 rating in the key 18-49 demographic compared to a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demo for the previous episode of the Blue Brand. The episode ranked #7 in ratings for the 18-49 demographic.

The show made a new record for low viewership with these numbers as they are the lowest SmackDown audience that have been registered since the start of this year.
This is also the new lowest SmackDown viewership since the show moved to Fox Network in October last year and with WWE returning to taped shows recently, the numbers are only expected to get worse in the foreseeable future.
