Wrestling Television Viewership Numbers: WWE Raw, SmackDown, NXT, AEW, IMPACT

The number is down from last week's viewership which stood at 127,000 viewers. Last Tuesday saw the return of CM Punk to the show, who served as a special analyst for the second time since his surprise appearance on Nov. 12. But even Punk's return to the show didn't help viewership as two weeks ago, the show drew 138,000 viewers.

The Dec. 17 episode drew a 0.05 rating in the 18 to 49 demographic, down from last week's 0.06 rating in the same demographic. Tuesday's viewership is the second-lowest viewership total the show has drawn since it premiered on Nov. 5. The debut episode drew just 49,000 viewers.

WWE Backstage airs Tuesdays on Fox Sports 1 at 11 p.m. ET. On Tuesday's episode, Alexa Bliss was the special guest. During her interview, she discussed how her partnership with Nikki Cross was formed. You can view her comments by clicking here.
