WWE Backstage ratings up, second-best numbers since official debut


This week's episode of WWE Backstage drew the second-best ratings the show has done in its regular time slot.

Backstage averaged 138,000 viewers on FS1 last night. In the 18-49 demo, it drew a 0.08 rating. That was up from the 121,000 viewers and 0.05 rating the show did last week.

Last night's Backstage featured an interview with Seth Rollins. A Promo School segment with Stephen Amell was also advertised, but Amell had to miss the show due to a pinched nerve in his back.

The highest rated episode of Backstage since premiering in its regular time slot has been CM Punk's official debut as an analyst on November 19. That episode averaged 180,000 viewers and drew a 0.10 rating in the demo.

Punk will make his second appearance as an analyst on Backstage next week.
