Last week’s final number was 2,544,000 for the episode leading into Survivor Series weekend.

The first hour of the show did 2,350,000 viewers that largely remained for the second hour with 2,322,000 from 9-10 pm Eastern.

CBS, which has the strongest lineup of Friday night programming, aired reruns of Hawaii Five-O and Blue Bloods.

Airings of Frosty the Snowman and Frosty Returns went against the first hour of SmackDown and Frosty was a draw with 4,043,000 from 8-8:30 and 3,453,000 from 8:30-9.
