WWE has longstanding tradition with a lot of events that are specially made for a specific theme or section of fans. This includes the Tribute To The Troops events, which honor the brave men and women who protect the country every day. WWE recently aired the latest Tribute To The Troops show. However, it did not garner as many views as expected.

The 20th annual Tribute to The Troops television special aired from the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, on December, 17th. It featured several memorable matches for the fans in attendance.

According to Wrestlenomics on their Patreon, this year’s Tribute To The Troops aired on Saturday afternoon on Fox with a 2:53 pm start time. It was watched by an average of 612,000 viewers. The show had a 0.17 P18-49 rating, or about 220,000 viewers in the age group.

This was the lowest viewership for a Tribute to the Troops episode since the inception of the event back in 2003. It was added that the viewership gained by the event was one-third of the audience the annual special had last year when it aired on Fox with a Sunday 5 pm start time.


It was further reported that the program aired in all markets and was preempted in a small number where it aired at a different time or on another network, but that viewership is also counted toward the final measurement. We’ll have to see whether next year’s show will fare any better.
