WWE’s final episode heading into the Survivor Series saw Friday Night SmackDown increases its audience for a show featuring talent from Raw and NXT.

The overnight rating for Friday Night SmackDown saw the show average 2,600,000 viewers over the two-hour program. That is broken down to 2,701,000 in the first hour and then dropped to an average of 2,500,000 in the final hour.

For the night, SmackDown averaged a 0.8 among adults 18-49, which tied Hawaii Five-O for the top network program of the night in that age bracket. SmackDown topped all network programs among adults 18-34 averaging a 0.5. SmackDown also scored a 1.0 with adults 25-54, which tied Magnum P.I. and Blue Bloods while trailing Hawaii Five-O, which are all CBS programs.

Last week’s show finished with 2,309,000 viewers, their lowest number yet on Fox.

The final number will be out Monday with the overnight number reflecting the top markets in the country.

I thought it was a good episode of smackdown so that’s fair.
