How Long WWE Is Planning For Each Night Of Wrestlemania 36, Smackdown Viewership

How Long WWE Is Planning For Each Night Of Wrestlemania 36
- Friday's episode of SmackDown drew an average of 2.374 million viewers in the overnight ratings, according to Showbuzz Daily.


Hour one drew 2.393 million viewers, then hour two dropped slightly to 2.355 million viewers. The show remained at the WWE Performance Center without an audience.

SmackDown also drew an average of 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which was tied for #3 for the night. Shark Tank and Hawaii Five-O topped the night at 0.9.

If the number holds up, it would be down 7.6% from last Friday's SmackDown episode, which drew an average of 2.569 million viewers with a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It would also be the lowest rated episode of SmackDown in 2020.

- Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that each night of WrestleMania 36 is expected to be a full pay-per-view. The event won’t be seven consecutive hours, but they are still planning at least three hours a night.
“We won’t have the 7 hour show, but it’ll be two straight days with three and a half to four hours each, I mean that’s the idea right now.”
WWE is filming additional WrestleMania matches outside of the Performance Center. Not every contest will be competed in the same ring. The show of shows will have some variety, but we’ll just have to see how WWE presents such a long event with zero fans.
