SmackDown ratings (Oct. 30, 2018): More treat than trick

Share the joy


It wasn’t a huge increase, but SmackDown’s television numbers were both trending in the right direction coming out of Evolution and heading toward Crown Jewel & Survivor Series.

2,110,000 people tuned in to USA Network on Tues., Oct. 30. That’s 23K more than the week prior. It also have WWE the 9th biggest audience among Tuesday’s cable originals, behind a bevy of Fox News and MSNBC programs.

SmackDown’s ratings were up as well. The .73 share of the overall 18 – 49 year old demographic was the best number of anything on cable last night.

It’s difficult to pinpoint any one thing which may have led to the increase; the only match announced in well in advance which ended up happening was the Trick ‘r’ Street fight. With such incremental rises in both metrics, this was likely just a normal swing within the range where the blue brand’s been operating lately (SmackDown 1000 not included).
