SmackDown Live ratings (Oct. 4, 2016): Down slightly against stiff competition

Considering they were competing against the Vice-Presidential debate (and all the ancillary coverage which came with it) plus what turned out to be a pretty epic Major League Baseball playoff game, WWE knew SmackDown Live wasn’t going to hit any ratings peaks this week.

That the ‘go home’ show for No Mercy, which used its main event to build toward the big AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose vs. John Cena world title Triple Threat on Sunday’s pay-per-view (PPV), only dipped slightly from last week’s show is likely being received as good news at Titan Towers today.

With 2.316 million viewers, the blue brand was ninth among cable shows in viewers, and finished with .83 rating among 18 - 49 year olds.

That’s down slightly from last week’s 2,340,000 viewers, and off Raw’s pace for the week (the red brand bounced back to an audience of 2.79 million on Oct. 3).
