WWE SmackDown posts best ratings since November

Overnight ratings for last night's SmackDown on FOX are in -- and it was good news for the most part for the Blue Brand.

The show averaged 2.502 million viewers, up four percent from last week. That's the best number for SmackDown since the Survivor Series go-home show on November 22. 

SmackDown averaged the same 0.5 rating in the 18-34 demo but was up seven percent in 18-49 with a 0.75 rating.

FOX finished below the other three major networks in terms of total average viewers for the night, although SmackDown did manage to beat ABC's Fresh off the Boat, as it usually does. 

SmackDown topped all network programming in 18-34 and finished second to CBS' Hawaii 5-0 in 18-49. 

The first hour opened strong with 2.679 million viewers but dropped 13 percent in the second hour to 2.326 million. That's the biggest hour-to-hour drop since moving to FOX. 

Here's a look at the last 10 weeks of ratings and viewership totals for SmackDown:
