Yeah that would have tipped the average over 4 million.

The first hour probably didn't hit what Fox were expecting, 3.9 million for a premiere at 8pm isn't great, on the other hand holding the audience for the 2 hours is a good sign a majority of them will tune in next week.

A so-so result.

The lapse fans left because of the woke, effeminate agenda WWE has been shoving down everyone's throats. Now that the baby oil and pancakes are going away and you have two badasses at the top of the men's division (Brock, Cain) that should at the very least give the viewers a reason to give WWE a second look.

Re: SmackDown TV Ratings Thread: THE A-SHOW ON FOX

My prediction was 4.5 million viewers, but 3.8 is still huge. Congrats to the WWE in that regard. The question is what they can do to help retain the lion's share of that number going forward when The Rock ISN'T there, or things like a ladder match and WWE Title match AREN'T advertised.

At the end of the day, A LOT of people watched professional wrestling this week, and that's awesome. What a time to be a fan of this insane business!

WWE wasn't "woke" or "effeminate" from 2003 - 2010 and they still lost half of their audience during that time.

Not between 2003 and 2010. They grew their audience between 2005-09

They lost 2/3 of their paying audience and nearly half their tv audience between 2000-04.

I do find it funny that one of Trump's biggest donors whose wife was on Trump's cabinet is considered 'woke and effeminate' by some members of the online community...

Isn’t 4 million bad though? That’s only a million more than they usually get! That number will only go down now!

No, Many people in the country go out friday night, no? Seriously Dave Meltzer and the goons just cant face the facts that their own rating was trash and will probably go under 1 million in a few weeks time, While WWE will probably hoover around the 3.5 level maybe higher with FOX executives taking hands on role here.

Re: SmackDown TV Ratings Thread: THE A-SHOW ON FOX

Indeed that is a big number, but did anyone expect less?! The Rock?! 'Nuff said.

The WWE hype machine and Fox's cross-promotion on all channels was very hard to avoid. It was billed as something "huge", but honestly, it was just another WWE show. Fox can make it all pretty and fresh, but it doesn't change the fact that next week, it'll be back to the same-old, same-old.

And yes, I know what some of you are thinking... "but what about the Draft?" Yeah, another ratings "pop" that is a one-off. I'm still going to say that the ratings will settle back down to about 2 million per week as we head into November. We will have to suffer through the Crown Jewel 2019 25-year time travel show. Ugh!

Aren't you all glad I'm back?!

3.8 million would scare me TBH. That tells me they are going to settle in well below 3 million.

I am not saying that he's a mega-draw. But it helps to have him on the show. He has more value than Bryan, Kingston and Rollins.
Is that what you marks always do when you're corrected on something you were obviously wrong about? Going down my list of favorite wrestlers (who I like because of their charisma, mic skills and in-ring talent, of which they all surpass Brock by miles in), doesn't change the fact that Brock isn't a draw. BROCK PARTY was a complete fail this summer You put him besides the Rock when he isn't even in the same league.

And ofc he will have more value than Kingston and Rollins. Look at how they were buried last night.
