WWE SmackDown Viewership Rises On The Final Stop Before WrestleMania 37
The latest batch of ratings is in for SmackDown, and WWE saw their Friday viewership stay above 2 million and rise this week.
According to ShowBuzz Daily, this week’s WWE SmackDown viewership came back with 2.080 million viewers, up from the 2.036 million viewers the March 26 episode drew. As far as demographics go, the 18-49 demographic saw an increase for team blue. This week’s 0.55 rating was up from the 0.5 rating in recent weeks. In the 25-54 demographic, SmackDown drew a 0.65 rating, identical to last week.
This week’s episode of SmackDown acted as a sort of kickoff show for WrestleMania. Featuring both a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match and the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, SmackDown was very much an extension of the overall two nights of WrestleMania that will begin this evening and extend through tomorrow night.
