WWE has a big thing going with the Bloodline, and fans obviously care when Roman Reigns and company are on television. It appears that their segment broke a big barrier into 3 million viewers last week.
As we previously reported, Alfred Konuwa said that the July 7th episode of WWE SmackDown brought in an overnight viewership of 2.375 million, with a .7 in the 18 to 49 demographic. That was their Money in the Bank fallout, and the Bloodline’s segment got over 30 minutes to kick off the broadcast.
Wrestlenomics reported the 1/4 hour numbers for SmackDown last week. Needless to say, SmackDown’s opening segment last week was a real winner.
The reported noted that 2.570 million viewers joined the show at the start. That next 1/4 saw a 19% increase to 3.07 million viewers. This was the peak of the show, with over 3 million fans watching.
The 3rd 15-minute segment of the show’s opening dipped to 2.705 million viewers, but it was still above the average of the show.
