Last Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live on USA Network drew a 1.73 rating among live and same-night-DVR viewers. That is a notch above last year’s rating the same week or 1.72. It’s a notch below the 2017 average of 1.76.

Keller’s Analysis: The ten week rolling average headed into this week was 1.76, so coming two days after a PPV with major happenings, the rating is a bit of a letdown. Although it was above the 1.67 from the week before, it was the same as the previous two weeks and well below the ratings pop they got from Vince McMahon when he drew a 1.93 rating back on Sept. 12.
