SmackDown audience falls back under two million

WWE on Fox’s Twitter

SmackDown scored its biggest audience in more than a month last week. This week it lost roughly 10% of those, and was under two million viewers for only the second time on Fox.

That’s the sharpest decline the show’s experienced in a while, but continues an up-and-down trend as the blue brand struggles to gain momentum in the Performance Center era... or on the year as a whole.

In the ratings, SmackDown‘s .3 was good for a tie for first among 18 - 34 year olds (with a rerun of ABC’s Shark Tank). WWE grabbed a share of second with folks under 50 with a .5 (tying the 10 p.m. Eastern hour of ABC’s 20/20).

Here are the overnight network numbers:
