Originally published at

The post-Thanksgiving episode of Friday Night SmackDown saw the show drop in the fast-national numbers.

Friday’s show from Alabama averaged an overnight audience of 2,336,000 viewers, it’s second-lowest figure since premiering on Fox in October. The final number will be out in a few days.

Last week’s final number was 2,544,000 for the episode leading into Survivor Series weekend.

The show did a 0.7 in the 18-49 demographic, which tied CBS’ airing of Frosty the Snowman atop that demographic among network programming. SmackDown also averaged a 0.45 with adults 18-34 for the entire episode and was tops for the night.

The first hour of the show did 2,350,000 viewers that largely remained for the second hour with 2,322,000 from 9-10 pm Eastern.

CBS, which has the strongest lineup of Friday night programming, aired reruns of Hawaii Five-O and Blue Bloods.

Airings of Frosty the Snowman and Frosty Returns went against the first hour of SmackDown and Frosty was a draw with 4,043,000 from 8-8:30 and 3,453,000 from 8:30-9.

Damn it frosty is effin popular

I’ve never seen Frosty the snowman. Is it good? I’m more interested in that than the weird fiend belt thing on Instagram

Weird how this is out but no AEW/NXT ratings?
