The key demo is 1 and 2. Smackdown is always really high on that front. I can't see how anyone can see this as bad!

But i know this ain't the AEW section and we look at actual viewership not key demos!

The triple threat match was pointless because you see them in ladder match at clash of champions Matt Riddle vs Boron Corbin because face each other not long go an half tag team champions vs 1 of Lucha house party don’t interest me lately smackdown and even raw shows lot rematches

Who's bright idea was it to put that terrible Lacey vs Alexa match before the final segment? Even though they got over 2mil again that crap alone will drive away plenty of viewers. They could've easily accomplished what they did with Alexa in a backstage segment. I thought last night was a solid show, but they need to do crescendo booking instead of these peaks and valley types of shows. A few weeks ago when SD got the 2.3 rating that was the show where everything flowed perfectly. They have enough people on hand to where they don't have to have these long boring curtain jerker matches.

I think it adjusted to a tad over 2M last week. This will probably end up 2.1M IMO.

My old WWE connection told me that Fox wanted 3.2-3.5M viewers no mention of demo. He kind of quit talking to me after AEW massacred NXT in week 1 when he was convinced NXT would trounce them when I suggested that I thought AEW would win and I think I told him AEW would do 1.2M and NXT 900K. He told me NXT would push a Million viewers and AEW might get 500,000 the first week then settle "around Impact numbers".

Fox execs basically said they expected it to significantly outperform what SD was doing on USA. Your numbers would be right in that range.

Kinda strange that RAW was way up this week and Smackdown was down by a bit even tho I think they have the way hotter angle.

NBA finals were on from 9-10, but AEW and NXT were up against a stronger game on Wednesday. News with the Trump deal may have been a factor tho.

Ideally, for how much FOX is paying Smackdown, you'd want at least a .70 demo, and they'll probably get that when crowds are back, hell, they'll get it next week for the loaded show and the draft.

This is why no one should bother with overnight numbers since those are misleading. Everyone should only focus on the actual numbers which comes out on Monday. Anyway Smackdown continues to show growth while Raw continues to be stagnant.
Not really.

RAW has the better draws in my opinion.

NBA Finals Game 5 won the ratings night for Friday. But Smackdown hitting over 2 million viewers is still a win during these pandemic era times.

they frontloaded smackdown, any angle you wanted to see was in the first hour as well as the important draft picks. Honestly, they're lucky there wasnt a bigger drop in the 2nd hour
