The post-WrestleMania 33 episode of WWE SmackDown Live enjoyed a slight increase in viewership this week. The show finished with an average of 2.885 million viewers, up from last Tuesday night’s “go-home” show for WrestleMania 33, which drew 2.698 million viewers.
Tuesday night’s show on the USA Network in North America finished number three for the night on cable television in terms of overall viewership, trailing “Tucker Carlson” and “The O’Reilly Factor.” WWE’s blue brand did, however, finish in the number one spot on cable television in the coveted 18-49 year old demographic.
For comparisons sake, last year’s post-WrestleMania 32 episode of SmackDown finished with 2.444 million viewers for a taped show. This past Monday night’s post-WrestleMania 33 edition of WWE RAW drew 3.767 million viewers, up from the red brand’s “go-home”n show last week, which drew a total average of 3.292 million viewers.
