WWE SmackDown Live ratings (June 27, 2017): Money in the Bank do-over keeps viewers

New, comments
WWE.com

SmackDown announced four bouts in advance for their Tuesday, June 27 episode - including two which just happened at their latest pay-per-view (PPV) event. Included in that was a do over of the first ever women’s Money in the Bank ladder match, as controversy over the ending of one in St. Louis had dominated the pro wrestling conversation for the better part of the past week-and-a-half.

Based on viewership and ratings for the latest edition of the blue brand, most fans stuck around to see that angle through to conclusion. SmackDown drew an audience of 2.6 million for the second week in a row - the third biggest among cable originals for Tuesday the 27th. Ratings-wise, there was only a slight decline in their share of 18 - 49 year olds at .83 (compared to .85 share a week ago), and they won the night as usual.

Next Tuesday’s show falls on a major U.S. holiday, but WWE has been accounting for that in the strongest way possible by hyping the Independence Day return of John Cena for weeks.

We’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, here’s a rundown of the blue brand’s audiences this year:

June 20 - 2.6 million
June 13 - 2.072 million
June 6 - 2.349 million
