SmackDown Viewership Before SummerSlam Ticks Upward

Last week’s episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown ended up doing 2.198 million viewers on FOX. That is up from the 2.168 million viewers the show did in the overnights that were released over the weekend.

Friday’s show, which featured the debut of WWE’s new ThunderDome at Amway Center, did a higher viewership than the week prior, which garnered 2.002 million viewers.

SmackDown helped FOX finish first place in the key demos for the seventh week in a row. This was the highest viewership number since the post-WrestleMania 36 episode on April 10.
