— The early numbers are in for last night’s Friday Night Smackdown on FOX and the show lost more viewers, dropping to an average of 2.442 million – a roughly 15% drop from the prior week’s 2.89 million, which might have been buoyed up by the first night of the WWE draft.
— The first hour drew 2.390 million and the second hour actually rose to 2.493 million with competition present in the form of Game 5 of the ALCS in play. Smackdown did win the 18-49 demographic in the broadcast sector yet again, achieving a 0.7 for the first hour and a 0.8 in the second – below the rumored benchmark of 1.0 though.
— The final numbers, including viewership for shows on cable, will be released on Monday though they don’t rarely change by too much.
