Thursday’s WWE Smackdown scored a 1.68 rating, up from the previous week’s 1.55 rating. The show averaged 2.332 million viewers, up from last week’s 2.133 million viewers.
Powell’s POV: A decent increase for Smackdown, though it didn’t get the big bump that Monday’s Raw did. The December 19, 2014 Smackdown delivered a 1.51 rating with 2.027 million viewers. This show was a replay of a show that aired live earlier in the week.
