– The rating for this week’s episode of Smackdown nicked upward, while viewership slipped a bit. Tuesday’s episode brought in a 0.76 rating in the 18 – 49 demographic and 2.449 million viewers. That is up 1% and down 2% from last week’s 0.75 and 2.505 million. The rating was on par with the 0.76 demo rating from two weeks ago, while the viewership drop — which, like many shows this week, was facilitated by the Winter Olympics — was the worst since the October 31st, 2017 episode had 2.119 million viewers.

Smackdown ranked #2 for the night among cable originals, per Showbuzz Daily. It was beat only by the Cavaliers vs. Oklahoma City NBA game (1.16 demo rating, 2.752 million viewers).
