Smackdown Live receives surge in ratings following Saudi Arabia travel issues

This week’s Smackdown Live was brought together at the last moment. WWE brought on the NXT superstars as the main roster was stuck in Saudi Arabia. This turned out to be a boon as the episode ended up being a success with fans.



According to a report by ShowBuzz Daily, Smackdown Live received 2.605 million viewers for the first hour of Friday Night and 2.481 million stayed for the second hour.

This is a major improvement from the 888,000 viewers that the show got last week on FS1. It is certain the company is elated at this improvement. Though it is to be noted last week’s show was against the World Series.

Regardless, things are getting better for the blue brand and we can hope they continue to make a better product.
