Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live scored a 1.77 rating, up from the 1.72 rating the show drew last week. As previously noted, the show averaged 2.578 million viewers, up from last week’s 2.481 million viewers.
Powell’s POV: A solid increase for Smackdown on a week where Raw lost viewers. The fact that Smackdown followed a Smackdown exclusive pay-per-view likely helped the cause. The December 20, 2016 edition of Smackdown delivered a 1.88 rating with 2.637 million viewers.
