WWE Friday Night Smackdown Overnight Viewers Back Over Two Million


-- Ahead of today's Elimination Chamber PPV, Friday's Smackdown audience was up after almost falling to a new record low since the move to FOX. Over the two hours, the show averaged 2.072 million viewers, a significant rise from last week's 1.884 million. The first hour was watched by 2.038 million viewers and surprisingly, the second hour actually climbed to 2.105 million - something which is generally unheard of for WWE shows lately. In the 18-49 demographic, Smackdown earned a 0.5 - the same as last week - putting it tied for second with multiple other shows on the night. The final, adjusted Smackdown audience and demo ratings will be released on Monday.
