Smackdown Ratings Drop To New Post-Draft Low

The holiday ratings malaise from Raw apparently carried over for a second night, as the final Smackdown Live! before their first brand-exclusive PPV did the worst ratings since the brand extension began, a bad sign given that the new fall season of network TV will resume in the next few weeks, which will also likely steal viewers away from the show. Overall, the show still finished third among original cable programming for the evening, bringing in 2.45 million viewers and a 0.79 rating in the 18-49 demographic. read more

10 Phenomenal Predictions For WWE Backlash

With the WWE Brand Extension once again in full swing, it’s time for the next hurdle in the road, the very first brand-exclusive Pay Per View. Smackdown gets the first kick at the can with Backlash, a PPV name that actually has a long history due to formerly being WWE’s first post-Mania PPV that dealt with the fallout from the largest show of the year (hence the name). Can Smackdown maintain the legacy of Backlash? Well, they’ve actually got a pretty big hill to climb, thanks to a small roster, a show that doesn’t seem to have enough matches announced to fill three hours, and having to introduce two major titles on the same show with only a few weeks of build-up. The talent is there, however, so the show could actually be quite good. And if you want some more thoughts and predictions to get you prepared for Backlash, well, then just keep reading. read more
