WWE Friday Night Smackdown delivered 2.446 million viewers for Fox, according to the overnight numbers listed by Showbuzzdaily.com. The number was up from the 2.336 million overnight number and the 2.325 final number last week. Friday’s first hour delivered 2.536 million viewers, while the second hour produced 2.356 million viewers.
Powell’s POV: Last week’s show aired on a holiday weekend, so the better comparison is the 2.544 million viewers the show did two weeks ago. Smackdown continues to lead the networks in the male 18-49 demographic outside of special programming such as the college football game that aired last night on ABC. The final numbers for Friday Night Smackdown and other shows will be available on Monday.
