Smackdown's viewership didn't pick up after the big Survivor Series show.
Tuesday night's Smackdown drew 2.505 million viewers, which is a hefty decrease from last week's 2.725 million. In all, the show lost 220,000 viewers over the Survivor Series go-home show.
Smackdown did manage to land at number one for the night in cable, as well as #1 in the 18-49 demographic. Throughout the fall and summer, Smackdown had to battle election season programming, but it doesn't appear that has had a positive effect now that it's over.
The show featured the fallout to Survivor Series, and a ladder match main event between James Ellsworth and AJ Styles.
