WWE SmackDown ratings up three percent from last week

Tuesday night's SmackDown averaged 1.921 million viewers on the USA Network, up three percent from last week. 

The episode finished eighth for the night on cable, trailing mostly news shows. It did face sports competition in the form of the College World Series, which averaged 1.957 million viewers on ESPN and aired directly opposite SmackDown for the full two hours. 

SmackDown finished comfortably on top in the important 18-49 demo with a rating of 0.62. 

SmackDown retained the usual 84 percent of Raw's audience from the night before and only dropped 10 percent from the same week in 2018. Aside from a big drop last week, the year-over-year numbers have been much better in the last couple of months, which could be a sign that at least SmackDown's numbers are stabilizing. 

Here's a look at the last 10 weeks of SmackDown viewership as compared to the same week one year ago:
