SmackDown ratings & viewership continue to climb

Americans are looking for pleasant diversions wherever they can find them these days. WWE has been offering a very strong two hours of sports entertainment on FOX every Friday night. People are tuning in for it.

What a concept!

SmackDown’s audience rose for the second straight week on Jan. 15, averaging 2.15 million viewers from 8 - 10 p.m. Ratings were also up in the 18 - 49 year old demographic, scoring a second place finish for FOX on the night.

Here are the fast nationals:

And here’s our running tracker of overnight numbers for the current season. You can also access the tab of year one numbers here (all data still via Showbuzz Daily).

Things are tracking in the right direction on the road to Royal Rumble. WWE’s established they can deliver two million viewers each week. Can they keep growing as we get closer to WrestleMania 37?
