Tuesday's episode of Smackdown Live averaged 2.340 million viewers, up from last week's low 2.292 million, according to Showbuzz Daily.

Tuesday's show featured AJ Styles defending his WWE Championship against Dean Ambrose, as well as appearances by John Cena, Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton.

Monday Night Raw manages 2.478 million viewers while taking on much stiffer competition in the form of Monday Night Football and Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton in the Presidential debate. Smackdown ranked number five behind a host of political shows, and #1 in the 18-49 demographic.

Outside of the WWE Draft episode of Smackdown, they've yet to outdraw Raw in viewership.
