It also pulled in an average of 0.50 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which was #2 for the night. That is the same as the 0.50 rating in the 18-49 demographic the show did last week. This week’s show featured a Gaunlet Match in the second hour to determine a new #1 contender for Roman Reigns’ Universal Title.
SmackDown was in the middle of the pack for the night among the networks in viewership. It was behind 20/20, Magnum P.I., Blue Bloods, Shark Tank, Dateline NBC, and other series among the top shows on network television.
It should be noted that this is the overnight number and the actual rating won’t be released until next week.
