WWE Backstage’s early overnight numbers didn’t look good at all. The original numbers said only 18,000 fans tuned in. The actual viewership was higher than that, but it wasn’t by much.
PW Insider reports that a correction to the overnight numbers has been made. Now WWE Backstage is listed at having 56,000 viewers this week.
It was noted that 18,000 viewers was actually the viewership of WWE Backstage’s 2:00 AM replay.
56,000 viewers means that they didn’t break the record for lowest viewership this week. The show’s first week on FS1 at 11:00 PM on Tuesdays saw them only bring in 49,000 viewers.
This week WWE Backstage featured Jeff Hardy’s return. JBL was also announced for an induction in the 2020 WWE Hall Of Fame.
