SmackDown Viewership Holds Steady For Elimination Chamber Fallout Show

Last night's episode of SmackDown Live, featuring the fallout from Elimination Chamber and an advertised main event of John Cena getting his championship rematch against Bray Wyatt (with AJ Styles being added to the match during the broadcast)  drew 2.626 million viewers. This is virtually no change from the 2.627 million viewers that watched the go-home episode last week, according to Show Buzz Daily.

SmackDown came in at #8 in viewership on cable for the night, behind Curse of Oak Island, Fixer Upper, and five Fox News programs: The O'Reilly Factor, Tucker Carlson, The First 100 Days, The Five and Special Report. SmackDown achieved the #2 slot for the highly coveted 18-49 demographic, trailing only Curse of Oak Island.
