reports the peak for overall viewership was the first fifteen minutes for the start of Bryan Danielson vs. Katsuyori Shibata averaging 454,000 viewers. The peak among the 18-49 audience was 185,000 for the six-minute overrun featuring Adam Copeland’s promo, which edged out the 8:15 – 8:30 p.m. ET quarter by 3,000 viewers featuring the ending of Danielson vs. Shibata.

Maybe, I don’t know, announce what is going to be on the show before Friday afternoon. Crazy idea but yeah
