WWE SmackDown ratings back over 2.4 million viewers this week

Overnight ratings are in for the December 20 edition of SmackDown on FOX, and the show averaged 2.414 million viewers. 

That number was up three percent from last week's near series low of 2.336 million. SmackDown averaged a 0.45 rating in the 18-34 demo last night and a 0.7 rating in 18-49. Both of those numbers were identical to two weeks ago and up 13 percent and eight percent respectively from last week. 

In terms of overall viewers, SmackDown trailed everything on the regular networks except for the Global Citizen Awards show that aired on CBS. SmackDown did top all of network television in both of the demo ratings, though the I Love Lucy Christmas special tied Smackdown in 18-34. 

With the exception of the November 22 Survivor Series go-home show, SmackDown has averaged between 2.34 and 2.45 million viewers every week since November 15 and the demos have come in at 0.4-0.45 and 0.65-0.7, so that seems to be what it's settling in at.

Here's a look at SmackDown's ratings and viewership totals since debuting on FOX in October:
