This week’s episode of WWE Backstage drew 100,000 viewers during the 11pm ET slot on FS1, which is more than double the 49,000 the show drew in it’s official premiere last week.
The second episode featured Samoa Joe, NXT Champion Adam Cole, Mick Foley, and a surprise appearance from CM Punk.
The jump in viewership can’t all be attributed to Punk’s surprise appearance as he didn’t show up until the last few minutes.
