WWE SmackDown Live ratings (Sept. 24, 2019): Farewell

WWE.com

It was the end of an era for WWE and USA, as Tues., Sept. 24 was the last episode of SmackDown LIVE to air on the network before it moves to Fox Fridays next week. Did viewers tune in to say goodbye?

Eh, about as many as have been tuning in for months.

The audience of 2,099,000 was up approximately 35K from the week before. There was lots of competition on cable from impeachment-focused shows on Fox News and MSNBC. SmackDown finished behind twelve of them in viewers.

Ratings news was better. WWE won the night with a .67 share of the overall 18-49 year old demographic, its best Tuesday number in about a month.

And now, none of this really matters any more, as expectations will be entirely different on Fox where, even though Friday isn’t a big TV night, the network is available in more homes than USA, and advertisers will want more bang for their buck.

Here’s a rundown of Tuesday night numbers over the past six months anyway:

Sept. 17 - 2.06 million / .63
Sept. 10 - 2.06 million / .62
Sept. 3 - 2.13 / .65
Aug. 27 - 2.09 / .64
