WWE SmackDown Ratings: Big numbers this week

Last updated

The overnight ratings for WWE SmackDown have now been released and it’s looking like the show was extremely successful this week on FOX.

According to Spoiler TV, the August 12th 2022 episode of the show brought in an overnight audience of 2.431 million viewers.

The numbers in the 18 to 49 demographic were also strong, with the show reportedly drawing a .45 rating for the night.

Compared to last week, the August 5th 2022 episode of the show had an overnight average of 1.983 million viewers, so that’s a big jump.

However, the 18 to 49 demo rating was actually better for the August 5th episode, as that show managed to garner a .5 rating.

This is the highest overnight audience that the blue brand has managed to get in quite some time, with the previous highest being around the 2.2 million mark in the past few months.

Clearly, the new direction with Triple H at the helm of creative is what fans have been clamouring for, and it may well continue to draw well going forward.
