SmackDown Draws Lowest Viewership Of The Year
While this week’s episode of SmackDown Live had some good moments and the show overall was praised by fans, it didn’t do that well when it comes to numbers.
The episode featuring Daniel Bryan vs. Jeff Hardy drew 2.195 million viewers, which is down 4.5% from last week’s episode of the Blue Branded Show.
Last week, SmackDown Live drew 2.298 million viewers while in comparison this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw did 2.668 million viewers.
This week’s numbers are the lowest SmackDown has done since Halloween 2017. The Halloween episode of the show last year had drawn 2.119 million viewers.
Former WWE Star On Raw Segment
The segment with Bobby Lashley’s ‘sisters’ on this week’s episode of Raw has been criticised by fans worldwide and many have even called it the worst segment ever.
Former WWE Intercontinental Champion and MMA Legend Ken Shamrock also recently commented on the segment via a tweet from his Official account.
In the tweet as seen below, Shamrock said that sometimes Raw becomes awkward to watch and wondered if the company had something more controversial planned:
When it's good, #RAW is great entertainment and unparalleled athleticism. When it's not, it can feel awkward to watch. The overall reaction to the Lashley bit makes me wonder, they had something more controversial written and the sister skit won out?
