WWE SmackDown! Scores Strong Rating

Brian Cantor


Without WWE SmackDown, UPN’s Thursday night lineup scored an extremely low 2.4/4 rating this week. With SmackDown, UPN’s scored a 3.7/7 Fast National rating on Friday night, the largest broadcast share for WWE SmackDown! – Thursday or Friday night – in quite some time.

The number was off hours of 3.4 and 4.0, which combined to give UPN a third place finish behind CBS and NBC.

While the preemptions will bring the final number down, this number certainly confirms that pro wrestling fans are not having any trouble finding WWE SmackDown! on its new night.
