WWE SmackDown ratings up following Money in the Bank

After setting record lows in two of the last three weeks, SmackDown rebounded to its best ratings since April 23, averaging 1.983 million viewers for Tuesday night's show.

That followed a night in which Raw had a relatively impressive audience total as well. SmackDown retained a lower-than-usual 78 percent of the Monday night audience.

SmackDown climbed back into the top 10 in terms of cable TV viewers on Tuesday, finishing in eighth place. It should be noted that ratings for the NBA Eastern Conference finals game between the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks were not listed at press time, but they likely beat the SmackDown number.

In the 18-49 demo, the episode finished second of all listed shows with a 0.61 rating, just trailing an NHL playoff game, which did a 0.62.

Year-over-year, SmackDown was only down 9.66 percent, just the second time since October the show didn't have a double-digit drop from the previous year.

The season finale of Miz and Mrs. dropped slightly from last week, coming in at 1.037 million viewers, the third biggest number of the season.
