WWE SmackDown Viewership Drops Below A Million On FS1

WWE Friday Night Smackdown Results
Last Friday’s SmackDown hit a new low for this year, but that isn’t a shocker as it aired on Fox Sports 1 rather than Fox.

According to Showbuzz Daily, SmackDown drew 881,000 viewers on the cable channel. It wound up at No. 15 in the 18-49 demographic, with a .25 rating. “Gold Rush” took the top spot, while cable news was much of the top 20 due to the upcoming election.

This isn’t the first SmackDown to air on FS1. Previously, the Oct. 25, 2019 episode did 888,000 viewers, so the number is very slightly down from then.


  • 2.687 million – February 28 – 2020 High
  • 881,000 – October 23 – 2020 Low (was on FS1)
  • 881,000 – October 23 – This Week
