WWE Backstage On FS1 Viewership For Debut Episode, Total Divas Numbers Up This Week


The numbers are in for the first installment of the new WWE series on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), WWE Backstage, as well as this week's episode of the WWE/E! reality show, Total Divas.

The Tuesday, October 15th episode of Total Divas on E! drew 281,000 viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily. The number was up from last week's show, which drew 261,000 viewers.

For the inaugural edition of WWE Backstage on FS1, the show drew 597,000 viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.

The show likely benefited from the strong lead-in they received from the MLB playoff game, which drew 4.640 million viewers for FS1 leading into the WWE Backstage premiere.
