- As noted before, the August 30th live WWE SmackDown special on SyFy did a 2.14 cable rating with 3.28 million viewers. SyFy usually averages a 0.52 rating in that timeslot on Tuesday nights with airing movies. Below is a segment-by-segment breakdown:

The John Cena vs. Wade Barrett match gained 37,000 from the opener while Daniel Bryan vs. Sin Cara gained another 39,000 viewers and Natalya & Beth Phoenix vs. Alicia Fox & Kelly Kelly gained 97,000 more.

The contract signing with CM Punk and Triple H gained 849,000 viewers,which is a high growth for SmackDown. Sheamus vs. The Great Khali lost 456,000 viewers which is expected based on the unusually high growth for the contract signing.

The Christian vs. Randy Orton cage match for the World Title gained 931,000 viewers but the show had an unexpected overrun so the 931,000 would include people tuning into SyFy for the next program. If you take the breakdown to 10pm, the growth for the main event was 278,000 viewers, bringing the final quarter rating to a 2.40 and the overrun to a 2.83.

Thank you. :)

Q1 - 1.76 rating / 2.71 million viewers
Q2 - 1.79 rating / 2.74 million viewers
Q3 - 1.81 rating / 2.78 million viewers
Q4 - 1.88 rating / 2.88 million viewers

Q5 - 2.43 rating / 3.73 million viewers
Q6 - 2.13 rating / 3.27 million viewers
Q7 + Q8 - 2.36 rating / 3.55 million viewers
OR - 2.83 rating / 4.34 million viewers

Unsure if the last few are right, in any case the first hour did no better or worse than your typical Friday SmackDown.

I don't think being on Friday Night's in America is the problem, I think the big problem is that it's shown in Austrailia between 18-21 hours before its shown in the States and between 5-8 hours earlier in the UK, that means that from around 8am USA time on a Friday it's all over the Internet before it hits American TV

Those contract signing and steel cage main event segment gain numbers are quite excellent to say the least.
