The overnight television numbers didn’t change that much for WWE and FOX on Fri., Feb. 19. The 2.07 million SmackDown averaged over its two hours are better than last week, but still below where they were tracking before and after Royal Rumble.
Ratings were flat in both the under 50 demos, good enough for a share of first place among 18 - 34 year olds, and a chunk of second among 18 - 49 year olds.
A bump in hour two is nice. Everyone will have their own interpretation. Mine is going to be that middle aged folks like myself flipped from Shark Tank to “Ding Dong, Hello!” Anyway...
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).
Will this pre-Elimination Chamber bump help build momentum for the rest of the Road to WrestleMania 37?
Please stand by.
