Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live averaged 2.582 million viewers for USA Network, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The number was up from the 2.455 million count from last Tuesday’s edition.
Powell’s POV: A decent increase for a show headlined by the first Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Randy Orton match. It will be interesting to ee how the return of Vince McMahon to television affects the numbers next week. The September 8, 2016 edition of Smackdown delivered 2.454 million viewers.
