Viewership for This Week's WWE Backstage Doubles; Total Divas Also Goes Up

-- This week's WWE Backstage - which featured the the surprise appearance by CM Punk (Video Here) - drew approximately 100,000 viewers, more than double the horrendous 49,000 that the show drew for its official premiere on 11/5. The two preview shows in October drew 597,000 and 426,000 but followed an MLB playoff game and Smackdown, respectively. The hope is that with Punk now on board, next week's show will see another increase in the ratings.

-- Total Divas meanwhile was up to 258,000 viewers, a healthy increase from the season low 191,000 viewers the week prior. Unfortunately, even with Ronda Rousey included on the cast, this season remains the least watched in the history of the show. Social Media Interaction
