Friday's WWE Smackdown television show drew a 1.86 rating, up from the 1.82 rating the show drew the previous week. Smackdown averaged 2.533 million viewers, up from 2.471 million the prior week. [Thanks to Dot Net reader Darius Malcisky]

Powell's POV: A slight increase for WWE while going up against NBA coverage. The NBA game drew roughly 6.6 million viewers for ESPN on Friday night. Smackdown was headlined by Ryback vs. Chris Jericho, but the pre-show hype focussed on the two meeting on The Highlight Reel in a talking segment.
