The ratings for this week’s episode of WWE Backstage bounced back from last week’s scary 49,000 viewership number.
Bryan Alvarez first reported that this week’s show drew 100,000 viewers. I don’t know if Fox considers that a good number for Tuesday night’s at 11 pm but they have to be happy about the big increase from last week.
100,000 viewers is still way down from the 597,000 viewers they drew last month with the ALCS lead-in and the second preview show that drew 426,000 viewers with SmackDown as the lead-in.
Next week’s number will be interesting now that CM Punk has been announced as a contributor to the show. Punk is not credited for this week’s number since no one knew he would be on the show and he didn’t appear until the closing seconds.
