– The premiere of WWE SmackDown on Syfy scored a 1.7 cable rating, with 2.5 million viewers, making it the most watched Friday night on the network in two years.
The program’s debut was considerably less than what it drew on MyNetworkTV, where it often garnered more than 3 million viewers on a weekly basis. The 2.5 million figure is down from the last released SmackDown viewership number, as the September 17 episode averaged 2.77 million viewers. (source: Pro Wrestling Torch)
