Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live scored a 1.63 rating, up from the 1.54 rating the show drew last week. As previously noted, the show averaged 2.269 million viewers, up from last week’s 2.034 million viewers.
Powell’s POV: It was a good week for WWE in the ratings, as both Raw and Smackdown delivered their best numbers of 2019. The big question is whether they can at least maintain these numbers going forward. I suspect Raw will perform well next week with Roman Reigns appearing and the Ric Flair birthday party, and Smackdown also has a good chance given the positive buzz around Kofi Kingston’s recent push. The February 20, 2018 edition of Smackdown delivered a 1.72 rating with 2.692 million viewers.
