A very different Smackdown on FOX, led by NXT, pulled in 2,543,000 viewers which is way more than the 888,000 the show did last week on FS1. Taking last week’s show away, Smackdown did 102,000 viewers more than the October 18 episode.
The show started with 2,605,000 viewers in hour one as curiosity certainly drove more eyeballs to the show while the second hour did 2,481,000 viewers.
Smackdown was #1 in the 18-34 and 18-49 demographic for the night but only beat The CW in total viewership among the five networks. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
