Election night does a minimal number on SmackDown viewership and rating.
ShowBuzzDaily reports that the Nov. 6 edition of SmackDown Live drew 2,088,000 viewers, down from last week's 2,110,000 viewers. The viewership isn't quite a 2018 low -- July 3 still holds that distinction with 2.01 million viewers -- and isn't even the lowest number in the last three weeks. The Oct. 23 episode drew 2,087,000 viewers.
Tuesday' episode drew a 0.68 rating in the 18 to 49 demographic, down from last week's 0.73 rating.
The show finished 17th among cable original programs, losing out to Election Night coverage across Fox News and CNN as well as College Basketball on ESPN.
