Smackdown's ratings were down, but not by much.
Showbuzz Daily reports that the show scored 2,509,000 viewers last night, down from last week's 2,580,000 viewers. Yesterday's State of the Union address dominated the night on cable, with Fox News and CNN coverage dominating most of the top ten spots. Smackdown was ninth for the night on cable, with the only other non-news coverage was Curse of Oak Island, which was sixth for the night.
The biggest amount of views on YouTube this week went to Carmella's attempt to cash in her Money in the Bank briefcase. After the Riott Squad laid out Charlotte, Carmella attempted to cash in. After the referee was knocked out accidently and took too long to recover, Carmella bailed. That clocked in at 1.1 million views.
The lowest viewed video was Benjamin and Gable confronting Breezango, That only did a paltry 76,000 views.
Next week's show will have Sami Zayn taking on Kevin Owens with the winner facing AJ Styles at Fastlane. Bobby Roode will also defend his United States championship against Rusev, who won a number one contender's match last night.
