The final viewership for this past Friday’s February 12 episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown on FOX has officially been revealed.
As per Showbuzz Daily, the show drew an average of 1.883 million viewers, which is quite a way down from the previous week’s February 5 viewership of 2.257 million.
In the important 18-49 demographic, the show got a rating of 0.57, which is also down from February 5’s 0.65.
WWE had promoted Roman Reigns making a “blockbuster announcement” – which ended up being the SmackDown Elimination Chamber – and Seth Rollins returning ahead of the show.
This week’s SmackDown drew the lowest viewership number since August last year excluding episodes on FS1, and ranked #3 on network TV for the night.
