WWE Smackdown rating: Final numbers for the August 22 show
Friday's WWE Smackdown scored a 1.79 rating, down from the previous week's 1.88 rating. The show averaged 2.461 million viewers, down from last week's 2.564 million viewers.
Powell's POV: NFL preseason games likely cut into the Smackdown number. That won't be a problem going forward as the preseason ends on Thursday. However, the football competition will be a big problem when WWE moves Smackdown to Thursday nights in October. The August 23, 2013 edition of Smackdown delivered a 1.90 rating with 2.572 million viewers.
