WWE Friday Night SmackDown draws lowest overnight viewership since FOX premiere

The overnight ratings are in for Friday’s WWE SmackDown episode from Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center.

The episode drew an average of 2.304 million viewers, which is down from last Friday’s SmackDown episode that did an average of 2.375 million viewers.

This marks the lowest-rated episode of the show since it premiered on FOX last October. The only lower-rated episode of the show since the partnership started came back on October 25 where the show drew 888,000 viewers on FS1. It should be noted that FS1 is in far lesser homes than big FOX.

The first hour saw it pull in 2.372 million viewers, hour two dropped to 2.235 million viewers.

It also pulled in an average of 0.60 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which was #4 for the night. That is the same from the 0.60 rating in the 18-49 demographic the show did last week.

SmackDown was #8 for the night among the networks in viewership, the same from last week’s #8 ranking. It was behind American Housewife, 20/20, Hawaii Five-O, Magnum P.I., Blue Bloods, The Blacklist, and Dateline NBC 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 Monday.
