Smackdown had more viewers but dropped in the rankings.
For the third week in a row, Smackdown viewership has been going up starting the week that Raw was at a record low. Last week had nearly 2.3 million viewers on average and this week had 2,340,000 viewers on average according to ShowBuzz Daily.
