WWE News: SmackDown Live Rating Drops Again, Moves Back Up To #2 (9/11/18)

Published

on

While this week’s edition of Monday Night RAW never stood much chance in the ratings and Cable Top 150 Rankings by being matched up with Monday Night Football for the first time this year, it’s a different story for SmackDown Live.

Last week, the blue brand was knocked off its perch by the series premiere of Mayans MC. Would that still be the case this week. The ratings for last night’s SmackDown Live are in and it’s another slight drop for the blue brand with a 2.229, a 3.9% decrease from last week and third straight week the rating has slipped. Here’s a look at the last four weeks of ratings for the blue brand:

  • August 21st: 2.437
  • August 28th: 2.350
  • September 4th: 2.319
  • September 11th: 2.229

As for the Cable Top 150 Rankings in the key 18-49 demographic, SmackDown Live was able to move up a spot this week after being dropped out of the number one spot last week for the first time in over a month:

  1. Mayans MC – FX – 0.78
  2. SmackDown Live – USA Network – 0.72
  3. The Purge – USA Network – 0.46
  4. *TIE* Below Deck Mediterranean (Bravo) /The Challenge: Final Reckoning (MTV) – 0.45

EA’s Take: Ratings for both RAW and SmackDown Live continue their post-SummerSlam slide, which was always my expectation. There’s a more concrete reason for it when it comes to Mondays however, due to Monday Night Football, so the blue brand really has no excuses. They’re basically maintaining their share of the 18-49 demographic and the new Mayans show saw a significant drop their from last week. So the lane is open for SmackDown Live to take back over their usual number one spot, it’s just a matter of how they get it done. I’ve talked before about how they have a lack of mainstream appeal, something I don’t see changing until the program moves to FOX.

The final match of WWE Survivor Series 2018 saw Universal Champion Brock Lesnar (representing Raw, and accompanied by Paul Heyman) fight WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (representing Smackdown, freshly turned heel).

  • After Paul Heyman reminded everyone just how over Brock Lesnar is, Daniel Bryan played his new heel role to perfection by sticking and moving, and mocking Brock Lesnar.
  • Once Brock Lesnar got his hands on Daniel Bryan, it was clobberin’ time for The Beast.
  • Ten minutes in, Brock picked Bryan up in a pinfall attempt, and Bryan fought back. The official was taken out, and Bryan hit a low blow on Brock. Bryan would hit the Knee Plus, but Brock kicked out at two.
  • The action spilled to the outside, but Daniel Bryan would score another near fall with the Knee Plus at 15:45.
  • Bryan locked in the YES Lock at 17:45, and Brock nearly tapped out. Bryan would lock it in again, but Brock got out again as well.
  • A few seconds later, Brock Lesnar would hit an F5 to score the fall at 18:42.
  • Even though it was already over, Brock Lesnar’s win gave Raw the clean sweep over Smackdown (since the kickoff didn’t count). It was Raw’s third win in a row.

The sixth match of WWE Survivor Series 2018 saw Charlotte Flair substitute for Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and face Raw Women’s Champion, the Baddest Woman on the Planet, Ronda Rousey.

  • Right after the introductions, the Staples Center crowd broke out into a “BECKY!” chant once more, but quickly subdued (for now).
  • The action was physical early, as Ronda was bleeding from the mouth five minutes in.
  • Nine minutes into the match, Ronda was getting fired up but Charlotte nailed her with a Spear for a super close near fall. Flair would follow-up by avoiding an armbar and locking in the Figure Four, but Rousey was able to reverse it.
  • Charlotte would nail Ronda with a kendo stick and blasted Rousey with it, losing by disqualification at 14:10.
  • Charlotte continued the onslaught, including Pillmanizing Rousey’s neck with a chair, which brought WWE officials out to the ring to stop the attack.
  • The ending of this match sets up the build for WrestleMania 35, where we can still expect to see Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair.
