Powell’s POV: Friday’s first hour delivered 2.043 million viewers, while hour two produced 2.050 million viewers. Both hours finished second in the network overnights behind the Tokyo Olympics, which drew 8.731 million viewers for NBC opposite Smackdown’s first hour, and 10.028 million viewers against Smackdown’s second hour. The final numbers for Friday’s Smackdown will be released on Monday.
