Smackdown came up with a decent episode during this week. Both the champions from the male and female division enjoyed successful outings at the Extreme Rules PPV event. But as always they should not have any time to rest especially keeping in mind that SummerSlam is less than four weeks away.

Subsequently, we expected to have two new number one contenders on this week’s Smackdown Live. Unfortunately, the creative team of the show pushed back the idea, for next week.

So, the United States Championship (US) match headlined this week’s show alongside a solid Miz TV segment that offered a eulogy for the Big Red Machine, Kane.

Eventually, despite the minimum efforts, it looks like Smackdown was able to see an increment in terms of viewership. This is the sole reason it offers shows on their network.

Smackdown witnessed a decent uprise in comparison to the last few weeks. They also keep their steadiness adjacent to WWE Raw, as well.

The fallouts from Extreme Rules with Jeff Hardy versus WWE US Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in the main event garnered 2.293 million viewers. It was up significantly in comparison to the last week’s episode from Manchester in New Hampshire that had 2.183 million viewers in the USA Network. (Courtesy WrestlingINC.com)

The source also gave updates that Hannity was the top show in Cable television on last Tuesday Night with 3.060 million viewers.

The other show that topped the chart is America’s Got Talent on NBC at 8 pm. It drew 11.330 million viewers, overall.

Smackdown was able to capture the sixth spot.

Check out further updates from the source, “SmackDown was #6 in viewership for the night on cable, behind Hannity, The Rachel Maddow Show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Last Word and The Ingraham Angle. SmackDown was #1 in the 18-49 demographic for the second week in a row.”

Here are the viewership from the last 5 episodes of Smackdown Live,

June 19th Episode: 2.315 million viewers (post-Money In the Bank episode)

June 26th Episode: 2.135 million viewers
July 3rd Episode: 2.013 million viewers
July 10th Episode: 2.183 million viewers
July 17th Episode: 2.293 million viewers (post-Extreme Rules episode)

This is one of those few seasons in the calendar where bigger storylines kick off.

So, we hope that better ratings will follow Smackdown Live in the upcoming weeks as we head to Summerslam.
