WWE SmackDown 10/8/21 overnight ratings drop from last week’s Draft episode

The overnight ratings are in for Friday’s WWE SmackDown episode.

The episode drew an average of 2.030 million viewers, which is down from last Friday’s SmackDown episode that did an average of 2.120 million viewers on FOX, according to TV Series Finale.

There’s no word yet on the hourly ratings. Last week, the first hour had 2.167 million viewers and the second hour had 2.073 million viewers.

It also pulled in an average of 0.50 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That is down from the 0.55 rating in the 18-49 demographic the show did last week.

It should be noted that this is the overnight number and the actual rating won’t be released until later this week. A drop in this week’s ratings was expected as last week’s show was the first night of the Draft.

This week’s episode featured Sami Zayn vs. Rey Mysterio and Finn Balor vs. Cesaro in King of the Ring tournament matches, as well as Zelina Vega vs. Toni Storm and Carmella vs. Liv Morgan in Queen’s Crown tournament matches. The show opened with a contract signing between Bianca Belair, SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks for their title match at Crown Jewel.
