The WWE SmackDown ratings data and viewership information are in for this week’s show, and the blue brand saw their numbers hold steady for the Survivor Series go-home episode. Last night’s show, which featured Charlotte winning the SmackDown Women’s Title, a surprise appearance from Ric Flair, Baron Corbin putting his US Title on the line against Sin Cara, and the RAW roster finally get its revenge on Shane McMahon and his band of merry men, drew 2.607 million viewers. This is up slightly from last week’s 2.603 million viewers.
It’s always good to see the blue brand gain numbers, and having two highly promoted title matches on the show probably helped matters. Plus, I am sure a lot of people tuned in to see if RAW would finally invade SmackDown Live leading into Sunday’s Survivor Series.
SmackDown Live was #7 in viewership for this week on cable, falling behind college sports on ESPN, Curse of Oak Island, Rachel Maddow, and Hannity. SmackDown Live was #5 in the 18-49 demographic, falling behind college sports on ESPN and American Horror Story. This week’s show garnered a .82 cable rating in the 18-49 demographic; this is the same rating it drew for last week’s show in the same demographic.
