I rarely blog about WWE television ratings but the recent trend on Friday Night SmackDown will make this blog an exception. SmackDown ratings are dropping at a record pace and are now on their ninth straight week with less than three million viewers.
I see all of the blogs and reports on a weekly basis about SmackDown’s ratings decline but really haven’t paid much attention. A bad rating here and there isn’t going to make a big difference on most weeks. However, I think there is a big story there when any program is over two months in a ratings slide and SmackDown is the story.
Last week’s SmackDown rating has finally put this program in crisis mode. SmackDown scored a 1.63 cable rating, down from a 1.69.
