The throwback edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown turned out to be a big success in the ratings.
Friday’s show averaged 2.282 million viewers on FOX, which is up from last week’s show that did 2.018 million viewers. In the all-important 18-49 demographic, the show did a 0.65 rating, up from the 0.49 rating last week.
It should be noted that the previous episode did have to go up against night two of the NFL Draft so it was expected to be down.
Friday’s viewership was the best the show has done since the January 29th edition, which was the go-home show for the Royal Rumble. Regarding the 18-49 demo, it was the best rating since January 15th.
Here is the demographic breakdown:
Viewers 18-34: 0.43
Viewers 18-49: 0.65
Viewers 25-54: 0.76
Female viewers 18-49: 4.5
