WWE Friday Night SmackDown overnight ratings slightly improve for Undertaker tribute show

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 2.174 million viewers, which is up from last Friday’s SmackDown episode that did an average of 2.089 million viewers.

The first hour saw it pull in 2.271 million viewers, hour two with 2.076 million viewers.

This was touted as a tribute show for The Undertaker. The first hour included various WWE stars talking about the legendary pro wrestler and the entire Boneyard Match from WrestleMania 36 was shown. WWE later stated that this was Taker’s last match.

It also pulled in an average of 0.50 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which was #1 for the night. That is the same from the 0.50 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 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 Monday.
