Friday's WWE Smackdown television show drew a 2.07 rating, which is up from the 1.88 rating the show drew the week before. The show averaged roughly 3.3 million viewers.

Previous high was 1.9. Seems smackdown is having a good run on SyFy

Mark Calloway is a cancer. Dude needs to learn from Bret Favre. Let the young guys get their shine.

-- Last Friday's SmackDown! did a 2.12 (2.1) cable rating, with 3,295,000 viewers - the show's best rating since it moved to the SyFy channel

The show was also the most watched on a Friday night for SyFy since the Stargate Atlantis premiere back in 2004.

Surprise, surprise. They're finally booking good shows and the ratings are following. There's no major change in the show, but I think it's the little changes that are driving it. Del Rio, introduction of the Corre, addition of a lead announcer that doesn't put you to sleep when you hear his voice, the addition of Michael Cole, a main event not involving Kane and an all round fresher presentation.

The show just seems watchable again, despite it being not too different than a few months ago on face value.

Right, because he was totally there last week...

...and the week before, don't forget that :p

Anyway, I think the ratings increase is a combination of about 10% of the reason Edge being World Champion, 10% Barrett coming to SD after a strong run on Raw, 10% that Smackdown has actually been putting on consistently good shows the past few weeks, and 70% because the Royal Rumble is coming up and the road to Wrestlemania is starting up.

Now all that needs to be done is get the Heavyweight strap on Kofi and let the people do the rest.

Ziggler with VICKIE = ratings.

Ratings have been going up ever since she made him become the #1 contender. It's no coincidence.

Kane hasn't been on SD for 2 weeks... rating rise. I think Kane scares the little kids! Kids change to cartoon shows and forget to put SD back.

Since everyone is attributing the ratings spike to someone...


Champion Edge = Ratings
