This weeks episode of Smackdown Live (January 10th, 2017) was headlined by a match between Baron Corbin and John Cena. The show also featured a Smackdown Live Tag Team Titles match between American Alpha and the Wyatt Family. How were the viewership numbers for this week?
According to Showbuzzdaily.com, this weeks episode of Smackdown Live drew 2.533 million viewers. This is down from last week’s episode that drew 2.596 million viewers.
In comparison, RAW this week drew 2.907 million viewers.
Not a bad number for Smackdown Live. Next week should be a big episode with the announcement of the steel cage match taking place between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. This weeks episode was decent but not the strongest that we have seen out of the blue brand. They will be looking to build up their audience as we head into the Royal Rumble in a few weeks.
