Re: **All Smackdown TV Ratings, Buys, Draw Talk Here** - THE BLUE BRAND RATINGS WAR

7/19 Smackdown/Draft TV Rating pops to nearly match Raw

By James Caldwell, PWTorch assistant editor

The Live Smackdown premiere/one-time WWE Draft event led to a huge surge in Smackdown’s TV audience Tuesday night on USA Network, almost beating Raw the previous night.

WWE Smackdown TV Ratings Tracking

July 19: The Tuesday night premiere scored a 2.20 TV rating, setting a high-mark for Smackdown entering a new era.

Smackdown nearly topped Raw the night before, which drew a 2.22 rating leading into the Live Smackdown/Draft special.

Previously on Thursday nights, Smackdown was ranging in the 1.5-1.6 ratings, representing a 40 percent jump for the Live premiere.

– Smackdown Live drew 3.190 million viewers, more than 1.0 million more than what last Thursday’s show drew.

Monday’s Raw drew 3.204 million viewers, just edging out Smackdown.

– DEMOGRAPHICS: Smackdown jumped off the page with Tuesday night’s ratings compared to the last Thursday episode.

Adults 18-49 jumped 111 percent to a 1.18 rating
Males 18-34 jumped 198 percent to a 1.49 rating after drawing a 0.50 rating last Thursday; a gain of nearly one full TV rating point
Males 18-49 jumped 154 percent to a 1.50 rating
– Historically, the last time Smackdown topped a 2.0 TV rating was a year-and-a-half ago for a Live Smackdown on January 29, 2015 when Smackdown moved to Thursday nights on Syfy.

The last time Smackdown topped a 2.2 rating was a live Smackdown on USA Network on December 18, 2012 during the “WWE Week” run on USA.

Caldwell’s Analysis: This was certainly a one-time pop with the Draft and Live Smackdown premiere on the same night, but it gives Smackdown some momentum going forward. It’s unlikely the show hits a 2.2 next week, but if Smackdown can stay above a 2.0 most weeks, WWE and USA Network will be pleased.

Honestly, though, when football, basketball and hockey start up I think they'll dip to the mid-2 millions. I think they'll sustain around 2.9m through the summer, though.
Smackdown's average in the Summer will not be beyond 2.5 million. No fucking way the way this disaster is booked.
And 2.5 will be Raw's number this fall.

Last night's show, with the Draft, compared to a normal Raw, the previous night only drew 40,000 (3.17 vs. 3.13 million) more viewers than a regular, non-Draft Raw. And this was a SD with the entire roster on it. A show without a 3rd hour to drag it down. No competition, either.

Horrible and very scary for WWE.
Chill with the hyperbole. This is a fantastic number for SD/Draft. What, did you think they were magically going to pull an extra 3 million viewers out of thin air? Talk about unrealistic expectations. This show was never going to sniff 4 million. Not even close. This is the furthest thing from a 'ghastly, horrible and scary' number lol. It's right about what the show should have done given the current climate.

The bickering over who draws more should be more entertaining than the actual shows. I'm hoping SD wins more often only for giggles.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

I would agree if this was a regular edition of SD. But for the one where the Draft was held? Getting the standard Raw number for the past year, without a 3rd hour to drag it down? I guess I should've had lower expectations for the actual draft itself.

So what if it got standard Raw numbers? Raw has been on the same night at the same time for over 20 years. It IS the flagship as much as WWE harps on about it. I really don't know what the hell you were expecting this show to do if you think this is bad. Raw hasn't had 4 million viewers in years. What the hell makes you think they're all going to come out of the woodwork to watch a show they never watched before, on a new night they probably don't about just because it's the draft?

Nah, don't think we need something like that. Just put what brand you prefer in your sig or something.

So, Raw actually got the slightly higher rating; with SD having the actual draft AND no 3rd hour to drag them down.

Come on. That is odd. The increase, due to SD's death these past few years is nice, but the actual numbers on their own aren't any good. Can't even beat a 3 hour Raw? And yes, Raw's number was bad, too.

Just because it's the draft? Huh? It's...the draft. It's absolutely the biggest thing WWE has done in quite a few years, actually. What in the actual...
