Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live scored a 1.56 rating, up a tick from the 1.55 rating the show drew last week. As previously noted, the show averaged 2.162 million viewers, up from last week’s 2.122 million viewers.
Powell’s POV: It should be upsetting to WWE officials that they drew over three million viewers for Raw Reunion, yet this week’s Smackdown rating was barely up over the week before. They have no one to blame but themselves since Monday’s show focused heavily on nostalgia and didn’t do much to hook returning viewers on the current product. The July 24, 2018 edition of Smackdown delivered 2.340 million viewers.
