WWE SmackDown ratings down for post-Thanksgiving episode

Last night's holiday weekend edition of SmackDown averaged 2.336 million viewers in the overnight ratings, the lowest total since the show's debut on FOX at the start of October. 

That was to be expected given that all of network TV was down. 

SmackDown did manage to finish in first place on the night in the key network TV demos. In 18-34, the show averaged a 0.45, down 10 percent from last week. For the 18-49 category, SmackDown averaged a 0.7, which tied November 15 for the lowest number the show has done in that demo and down 12.5 percent from last week.

Like Raw, there did not seem to be any kind of a post-PPV bump following Survivor Series.

The previous low for viewership was two weeks ago, when SmackDown averaged 2.35 million viewers and nearly identical numbers in the demos.

Here's a look at SmackDown's ratings since starting on FOX:
