Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live saw a drop in its audience and posting the show’s fourth-lowest viewership of 2019.
The episode averaged 1,930,000 viewers, down 4.3% from last week’s episode that was promoted around an appearance by Bill Goldberg. This week’s show featured the return of Big E., who teamed with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods against Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens in the main event.
The only episodes to perform worse this year were from February 5th, April 30th, and May 14th. The latter two faced competition from the NBA playoffs, while this week’s show didn’t have any sports competition.
SmackDown was still the fifth most-watched program on cable Tuesday night trailing cable news programming.
