WWE SmackDown Live ratings (Nov. 13, 2018): Bounce back

WWE.com

Without the political equivalent of a pay-per-view (PPV) to go against, and with a lot of uncertainty about their own upcoming event SmackDown delivered its best numbers in months... for a non-anniversary episode, that is.

With an audience of 2,312,000 on Nov. 13 for the Survivor Series ‘go home’ show, WWE not only had an increase of 224K viewers from the week prior. SmackDown 1000 aside, it was their best viewership number since the weeks after SummerSlam. That was good for the ninth biggest audience among Tuesday’s cable originals, behind the return of History Channel’s Canadian reality hit Curse of Oak Island, Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and several Fox News shows.

Ratings news was even better, as the blue brand won the night with a .80 share of the overall 18 - 49 year old demographic. Not counting last month’s anniversary episode, that was the best number since WrestleMania season.

Can they keep it up next week as folks head home for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States? Let us know what you think, and here’s a list of SmackDown’s numbers from the past six months for reference:
