WWE Backstage rebounds with 124,000 viewers

Helped by a lead-in from a college basketball game, Tuesday's slightly delayed edition of WWE Backstage saw an increase in viewership to 124,000, the fifth-highest of the series.

That was a considerable increase from last week's 97,000 viewers for the New Year's Eve show. The show started roughly 12 minutes after the hour due to the end of the Villanova-Creighton game.

The only thing advertised for the show was an appearance by The Miz.

In the 18-49 demo, the show drew a 0.04 which was slightly up from the .03 from New Year's Eve.

  • November 5 -- 49,000 viewers
