The live Smackdown on USA Network last night did 2,264,000 viewers, down from last Thursday’s episode which did just over 2.3 million viewers. Apart from that, it was the best number in a month for the show.
Last week, USA Network’s 8PM broadcast on Tuesday did not even register in the top 150 cable shows so you can see why USA wanted Smackdown to go along with Raw on their network. The live Smackdown was third overall this week. (Ratings credit: ShowBuzzDaily.com)
