It's just a terrible product right now. That's what you blame. Not high school football.
Wasn't the "dip" roughly two hundred thousand people from the previous week? That's not exactly massive. That sort of fluctuation happens all the time.
You can blame a steady decline on the product.
What if viewership numbers were down across the board on Friday (a quick glance makes me lean toward concluding that was the case)? Fewer people watched the other top shows during the same time frame on Friday night because of the decline in quality of Smackdown? Good luck proving THAT one.
