The final viewership number is in for the 10/18/19 episode of Friday Night SmackDown and the news is not good.
The recent episode was watched by 2,418,000 viewers. The show drew a 0.7 rating for the important 18-49 demographic, lower than what FOX had been expecting for the show.
This coming Friday’s episode will be moved to Fox Sports 1 because of the World Series so that number will not mean much but the goal should be to draw a higher number when they return to FOX in a couple of weeks.
Here are the viewership numbers for the first three weeks of shows on FOX:
10/4/19 – 3,888,000
10/11/19 – 2,899,000
10/18/19 – 2,418,000
