Live Smackdown Rating Is In....An Interesting One
The live WWE Super Smackdown episode scored a 1.70 rating, which was down one-tenth of a rating compared to Friday's episode last week. Smackdown averaged 2.54 million viewers, which was down 3.6 percent compared to the taped Friday episode four days earlier. Super Smackdown did reverse a downward trend for the live specials. The previous live special on April 10 averaged a dismal 2.24 million viewers and the February special averaged 2.33 million viewers.
On cable, Smackdown ranked #8 in overall viewers (the first hour ranked #1 on cable TV). Syfy will be pleased with a #1 ranking in key male demos on Tuesday night. Syfy will not be pleased with the "Haunted Highway" episode that was heavily promoted during Smackdown drawing fewer than one million viewers following Smackdown. Also, Highway drew less than half of Smackdown's key male audience.
