WWE SmackDown Ratings: Viewership bounces back (04/11/22)

Last updated

Last Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown drew a strong rating ahead of the WWE Crown Jewel event this past Saturday in Saudi Arabia.

Wrestlenomics released the latest numbers for the show as part of their Patreon, and the blue brand managed to jump back over 2 million viewers after the FS1 version of the show the week before got around 800,000.

“WWE Smackdown, Friday on Fox, was watched by 2,138,000 viewers on average, including about 626,000 aged 18 to 49, for a 0.48 P18-49 rating” the site revealed.

“This was Smackdown’s lowest total viewership on Fox since September 2 and lowest P18-49 since August 26.

“Smackdown was preempted on FS1 last week with 835,000 viewers and a 0.23 demo rating” the site added.
