The WrestleMania fallout show, on the heels of a Superstar Shakeup announcement, was expected to bring a ratings and audience boost to SmackDown. It delivered.

WWE’s Tuesday night offering on USA Network drew 2,952,000 viewers, up nearly a half-a-million from the week before. That was the third biggest audience among cable originals, behind only Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and Sean Hannity on Fox News.

Demographic share among 18 - 49 year olds on April 10 was also up significantly, to .98.

Can a new roster build from this and maybe reach 3 million? Or will next Tueday be back to the blue brand’s usual zone? Let us know what you think, and feel free to analyze this list of SmackDown’s numbers over the past six months (including overall 18 - 49 year old ratings for 2018 episodes) for trends:
