November 26 WWE SmackDown Sees Slight Drop In Viewership
A small drop
The Friday 26 November episode of WWE SmackDown saw a slight dip in viewership.
According to Spoiler TV, this past week's Friday Night SmackDown drew an average of 1.968 million viewers in the overnight ratings, which is a small decrease last week's episode, which drew 1.988 million viewers.
In terms of the crucial 18-49 demographic, SmackDown registered a 0.5 rating, which was actually the joint-highest on cable for Friday evening. WWE's blue brand was level with How The Grinch Stole Christmas, which was shown on ABC.
In terms of hourly breakdown, SmackDown drew 1.872 million viewers in hour one and 2.063 in hour two, with more viewers tuning in for the advertised Black Friday Battle Royal to determine the new number one contender to Roman Reigns and the Universal Championship - a match won by Sami Zayn.
The theme of this past week's SmackDown centred around Brock Lesnar, with Kayla Braxton revealing Lesnar's suspension had been lifted and he would be returning to WWE on this coming week's show.
