Smackdown Viewership Down Again, WWE Fan Segments (Videos)
- WWE continues to do interactive segments with fans during commercial breaks at the weekly RAW and SmackDown TV events.

Below are fan segments with Sarah Schreiber from last night's SmackDown in Ontario, California at the Citizens Business Bank Arena. Schreiber had fans do Superstar impersonations and later quizzed them on nicknames.

- This week's WWE SmackDown episode, featuring the final hype for the WWE Stomping Grounds pay-per-view with WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins defeating Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens in a 2 of 3 Falls match, drew 1.859 million viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.

This is down 3.7% from last week's 1.930 million viewers for the post-Super ShowDown episode, and the third-lowest SmackDown audience for a non-holiday first-run episode in history.

To compare, Monday's Stomping Grounds go-home edition of WWE RAW drew an average of 2.235 million viewers, up from last week's 2.125 million viewers, which was the lowest non-holiday RAW viewership in history.
