SmackDown Viewership On March 28 Sees Only Slight Increase For Mania Go-Home Show

Last night's episode of SmackDown Live, featuring the final hype for Sunday's WrestleMania 33 pay-per-view, including a blistering promo from John Cena, a contract-signing between AJ Styles and Shane McMahon, and WWE Champion Bray Wyatt facing off against his former Family Member Luke Harper, drew 2.698 million viewers, according to Show Buzz Daily. This is a slight increase from last week's 2.647 million viewers, though not as high as the 2.792 that watched the March 7th episode.

SmackDown came in at #5 for the night in viewership on cable, behind Fixer Upper, Rachel Maddow, Tucker Carlson and The O'Reilly Factor. SmackDown did manage to rank #1 in the highly coveted 18-49 demographic.

For reference, Monday's episode of Raw drew 3.292 million viewers, which is up from the 3.048 million viewers that watched last week's episode.
