WWE Smackdown Live rating: Final numbers for the April 17 Superstar Shakeup edition

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live scored a 1.99 rating, down from the 2.10 rating the show drew last week. As previously noted, the show averaged 2.796 million viewers, down from last week’s 2.952 million viewers.

Powell’s POV: Last year, the second night of the Superstar Shakeup on April 11, 2017 delivered a 2.14 rating with 3.105 million viewers. It’s interesting that Raw’s numbers were up for the Superstar Shakeup compared to last year, while the Smackdown viewership was down compared to last year. One difference is that there was an NBA playoff game airing opposite Smackdown this time around.

  1. I think also a problem is that Raw gives away a LOT of the transfers that will happen on SDL. US title holder comes to Raw, Jeff wins US title. Gee I wonder what will happen on SDL.
