Last week’s WWE Smackdown saw the rating fall to its lowest point on FOX since late May, while the viewership also slipped. Friday’s episode scored a 0.53 rating in the 18 – 49 demographic and 2.094 million viewers per Wrestlenomics. Those numbers are down 18.5% and 14.3% respectively from the previous week’s 0.65 demo rating and audience of 2.443 million.

The demo rating was the lowest on FOX since the May 26th episode brought in a 0.52; there was a lower episode on July 21st, though that was for a FOX Sports 1 airing so it’s not comparable. The total audience matched the August 18th episode.

Smackdown is averaging a 0.604 demo rating and 2.296 million viewers in 2023, compared to a 0.517 demo rating and 2.129 million viewers for the same time period in 2022.
