But what does the WWE Smackdown Rating really mean, Greg?
After sitting outside the Top 5 for two weeks, Smackdown made a triumphant return coming at #2 for the night, narrowly losing out to the NHL Conference Finals (won by the St. Louis Blues and apparently Patrick O’Dowd). Interesting of note is that Smackdown outdrew the NHL in terms of overall viewership (hockey drew 1.807 million viewers), but fell just short in the share (Smackdown’s .61 versus hockey’s .62). Once again, the only thing that tends to knock WWE out of the top spots is live sports (and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta 8).
This is good news for Smackdown and WWE in general, as Money In The Bank and the return of Brock Lesnar did in fact garner more eyeballs. Add in the WWE 24/7 Championship, which I am inclined to believe had at least a short term impact based on the fact that R-Truth and Robert Roode came in #1 in the 36 hour YouTube views for Raw, and things being thrown at walls are sticking right now. Let’s hope it continues! Also of note, Miz & Mrs came in at #5 with 1.037 million viewers and a .37 rating, strong for the show. Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and The Last OG came in #3 adn #4, respectively.
