WWE Backstage aired a special Year End Awards episode this week because it was Christmas Eve. They didn’t have any usual guests on the show, but they still pulled a decent number.

Showbuzz Daily reports that WWE Backstage brought in 153,000 viewers this week. That might not seem like a ton, but it’s the second highest viewership the show has pulled in since debuting on Tuesdays at 11:00 PM EST on FS1.

Last week’s viewership didn’t even crack 100,000. So, 153,000 is way better than 95,000.

Their highest rated regularly scheduled show to date was CM Punk’s first promoted episode. That episode brought in 180,000 viewers.

We’ll have to see what WWE Backstage will being in 2020, but they did a pretty good job snagging interest as fans channel surfed on Christmas Eve.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
