Last week’s WWE Smackdown saw its ratings slip a bit, while the total audience was up. Friday’s episode scored a 0.59 rating in the 18 – 49 demographic and 2.186 million viewers per Wrestlenomics. Those numbers were down 4.8% and up 2.7% respectively from the previous week’s 0.62 demo rating and audience of 2.128 million.

Friday’s show was the lowest demo rating since the April 26th episode had a 0.58, while the total viewership was the best since the April 19th episode drew 2.333 million. The show was up against the NBA Playoffs on ESPN and the NHL Playoffs on TNT, though the ratings for both are not yet in.

Smackdown is averaging a 0.664 demo rating and 2.360 million viewers in 2024 to date, compared to a 0.596 demo rating and 2.319 million for the same point in 2023.
