WWE SmackDown above two million viewers in final ratings

Final numbers are in for Friday night's Thanksgiving weekend edition of SmackDown -- and the show averaged 2.141 million viewers on Fox. That's down eight percent from the previous week's final number.

Overnight numbers for the Thanksgiving weekend show had SmackDown below two million viewers for the first time in a couple of months, but -- as has been the case for a while now -- the final number ended up about 10 percent higher. 

SmackDown was the least viewed show on the major networks on Friday, although it was just below a CBS News program that did 2.2 million viewers.

In the 18-49 demo, SmackDown averaged a 0.6 rating, down 14.3 percent from last week. That beat everything on the networks except a couple of holiday cartoons on NBC.

The 18-34 rating for SmackDown was a 0.3, down 25 percent from last week. That finished in the middle of the pack in that category with the two cartoons as well as ABC's Shark Tank all beating that number. 

Year-over-year, SmackDown was down 7.9 percent in viewership from the Thanksgiving weekend episode in 2019. In 18-49, SmackDown was down 14.3 percent from the same week last year.
