6/18 WWE Smackdown Ratings Edged Out By ‘Real Housewives’, Viewership Falls Yet Again


This week’s episode of Smackdown Live was watched by 1.859 million viewers, down 3.7% from last week’s show. This is the second week in a row that the blue brand failed to draw above two million viewers, and the sixth time over the past eight weeks.

Smackdown Live was number two in cable television on Tuesday night with a 0.56 rating in adults 18-49. It was narrowly beaten out by BRAVO’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which severely outdrew WWE in the female demographic, drawing a 0.88 with women 18-49 and averaging a 0.57 overall between men and women in the same age range.
