Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live averaged 1.983 million viewers for USA Network, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The number was up from the 1.827 million count from last Tuesday’s edition.
Powell’s POV: The number was up, but the fact that the show remained below two million viewers despite not facing NBA playoff competition is alarming. Smackdown finished second in the 18-49 demographic behind the NHL playoff game, which delivered 1.807 million overall viewers for NBC Sports Network. The May 22, 2018 edition of Smackdown delivered 2.195 million viewers.
