This past Friday's WWE SmackDown drew an average of 1.893 million viewers in the overnight ratings, according to Showbuzz Daily.

Hour one drew 1.919 million viewers, before dropping to 1.867 million viewers in the second.

SmackDown also drew an average of 0.45 rating in the 18-49 demographic, and was tied at #1 for the night with Dateline NBC, while most of the other programming was reruns.

If the number holds up, it would be down 0.6% in viewership from last Friday's SmackDown episode, which drew an average of 1.905 million viewers with a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It would also be the lowest non-holiday number for the show on FOX.
