During the Q3 2020 earnings call, it was announced that Stephanie McMahon’s responsibilities with WWE have increased. One thing is that now Global Sales and Partnerships fall under her purview.
Below you can see her announcement:
— Last night’s SmackDown returned to normal numbers following a week’s vacation to FS1, and even gained a boost compared to two weeks ago following a successful Hell in a Cell PPV this past Sunday. It also may have helped that the show’s competition has changed from playoff sports to Shark Tanks and a special about home videos.
In any case, the blue brand averaged 2.133 million viewers in overnight ratings according to Showbuzz Daily‘s count. The show also drew a 0.6 across both ours in the 18-49 demographic, outclassing everyone in the timeslot outside of 8 PM’s airing of Shark Tank on ABC. It’s a similar story in 18-34, where SmackDown and ABC’s Sharks both drew a 0.3.
