CM Punk made his heavily anticipated debut on WWE Backstage and more people tuned in as a result.
The show had done just 50,000 during its debut episode and then rose to 100,000 after Punk’s surprise appearance at the end of episode two. This week’s episode came in at 180,000 viewers per Showbuzz Daily. That’s more than triple what it did on its first week.
(Note: This doesn’t count the two pre-show specials that aired prior to it being a weekly show on Wednesday nights at 11 p.m. ET.)
