Friday's WWE Smackdown drew a 2.03 rating, down from the 2.2 rating produced the previous week. Smackdown averaged 1.76 million viewers, also down from the prior week's 2.721 million viewers.

Powell's POV: The previous show had The Rock making his return to Smackdown and Alberto Del Rio winning the WWE Championship. Friday's show didn't get much of a push from WWE aside from the promotion of Alberto Del Rio's fiesta. Nevertheless, WWE has to be pleased by the number since it's only the second time they've topped the 2.0 mark on a Friday night since October.
