WWE SmackDown ratings remain steady this week

Overnight ratings for last night's SmackDown on FOX saw the show average 2.04 million viewers, the exact same number as two weeks ago and almost identical to last weeks 2.043 million. 

Unlike last week, there was a slight decline throughout the show. It opened with 2.076 million viewers in hour one and fell to 2.003 for the second hour. 

In the 18-34 demo, SmackDown averaged a 0.3 rating, down 14.3 percent from last week. It tied a repeat of ABC's MacGyver for the top spot on network TV in that category. 

In 18-49, the rating was actually up 9.1 percent to a 0.6. That beat everything else on the networks, with NBC's Dateline coming closest with a 0.5. 

After several weeks of declines following the move to closed set shows from the WWE Performance Center, the numbers seem to have stabilized at the level they're at, at least for SmackDown.

Last night's show featured two Intercontinental title tournament matches, a non-title champion vs. champion match between Bayley and Charlotte Flair, and Mandy Rose & Otis vs. Sonya Deville & Dolph Ziggler.
