WWE SmackDown back over two million viewers for final MITB build

After falling below two million viewers last week, SmackDown on FOX averaged 2.04 million in the overnight ratings for last night's Money in the Bank go-home show.

The show averaged 2.087 million viewers in hour one and fell about five percent to 1.992 million in the second hour. The average was up 6.3 percent from last week's series low and was the highest number in three weeks. 

SmackDown averaged a 0.3 rating in the 18-34 demo, up from last week's 0.2, which was also a series low. In 18-49, the show averaged the same 0.5 rating it has done the last two weeks. 

In 18-34, SmackDown beat everything else on network TV except for two episodes of Magnum PI on CBS. But in 18-49, SmackDown tied The Blacklist and 20/20 for the lowest number in that demo.

In terms of total viewers, SmackDown was well below everything else on the networks with the closest being Dateline NBC, which averaged 3.725 million.

Here's a look at the last 10 weeks of SmackDown viewership totals as well as key demo numbers. It should be noted that closed set shows began on March 13:
