Viewership for the Christmas edition of Smackdown
The Christmas Day episode of Smackdown delivered a huge overnight number although that could change come Tuesday when the final number is out. The show, headlined by three title matches, drew an average of 3,335,000 viewers with the first hour delivering 4,097,000 viewers and the second hour doing 2,574,000 viewers.
Smackdown started late due to the NFL so the first hour number has the NFL audience in it and that will be taken into account when the final number is out next week. The second hour number is more indicative of where the actual number will end up.
In the demos, which will also change on Tuesday, Smackdown did 0.65 in 18-34, 0.95 in 18-49, and 1.1 in 25-54. The NBA game on NBC took top spots in all demos. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
