The latest batch of ratings are in for Friday Night SmackDown, and after a disappointing episode last week, this week’s broadcast bounced back, with over 2 million people tuning in to the show.
Thanks to new information from Showbuzz Daily, we’re able to see that overnight viewership is up for the show compared to last week, with a 4.5% increase occurring from the last episode. After falling under two million viewers last week, last night’s episode saw 2.002 million people tune in, marking a nice increase from the downtime that popped up during the holidays.
As far as demographics go, the 18-49 demographic once again showed up for SmackDown. This week’s 0.5 rating was the same as last week, but still good enough to put SmackDown 5th amongst the other networks for the week. In the 18-34 demographic, SmackDown posted a 0.3 rating, good for second amongst all networks, as the episode fell just behind ABC’s Shark Tank.
