Undertaker Biography

The season premiere episode featuring the Deadman drew an overnight audience of 582,000 with a 0.14 in the 18-49 demo.

It’s also worth noting that the replay of the show, which aired at 12 AM, also brought in an additional 162,000 overnight viewers. The replay also gained a 0.05 in the 18-49 demographic, thus giving a full total of 744,000 viewers.

It’s not a fantastic number, especially considering it is a season premiere. What is interesting is that WWE and ‘Taker himself have been pushing him more toward his real-life persona over the past couple of years.

Has this move meant that people are less interested now that the mystique has worn off? Possibly.
