With regular programming back on air, Smackdown dropped a bit in viewers this week compared to the non-holiday shows, with the show getting 2,002,000 viewers in the overnight ratings. Last week’s final number was 2,013,000 so this week will certainly beat the New Year’s day show when final viewership is added on Monday.
The show had 2,036,000 viewers in the first hour and 1,969,000 viewers in the second hour. It did 0.30 in the 18-34, 0.50 in the 18-49, and 0.60 in the 25-54 demos, placing joint second, joint third, and joint fourth respectively among all networks. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
