WWE SmackDown Ratings (1/24): Viewership Drops For Royal Rumble “Go-Home” Show

The numbers are in for the final episode of WWE television leading into this year’s WWE Royal Rumble 2020 pay-per-view, and the news isn’t good!

According to Showbuzz Daily, last night’s Friday night SmackDown drew an average of 2.470 million viewers, a 3.6% drop from last week’s episode.

The program did score a 0.7 rating in the always important 18-49 demographic, which was number one for the evening.

There was also once again a drop from hour one to hour two.

The program finished sixth overall in total viewership, coming behind the normal Friday night lineup of American Housewife, 20/20, Magnum P.I., Blue Bloods, and Hawaii Five-O, which won the night with 5.2 million people watching.
