CM Punk was absent from WWE Backstage this week and viewership dropped as a result.
The show had done 180,000 during Punk’s debut episode but without Punk, the episode took a considerable dip. This week’s episode came in at 121,000 viewers per Showbuzz Daily. That’s down nearly 60,000 viewers from last week.
(Note: This doesn’t count the two pre-show specials that aired prior to it being a weekly show on Wednesday nights at 11 p.m. ET.)
180,000 – November 19 – 2019 High
50,000 – November 6 – 2019 Low
121,000 – November 26 – This Week
