We noted before how both Raw and WWE Backstage suffered a rating drop heading into TLC and SmackDown seems to have suffered the same fate.
Last Friday’s episode of SmackDown Live featuring a tag team match between The New Day and Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin drew an average of 2.330 million viewers, according to showbiz daily.
This is a 5% decline from the previous week’s episode of the show which featured a Roman Reigns vs. Dolph Ziggler match for the main event and had drawn 2.452 million viewers.
The show did a 0.7 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and it was ranked #1 in the 18-49 demographic on network TV this week. It was also #8 for the night in overall viewership on network TV.
In comparison, last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, drew a total of 2.150 million viewers, which was a 2.6% decline from the 2.208 million viewers the show did the week before.
