The July 16 episode of Smackdown Live was up around 269K from last week. It drew 2,122,000 viewers for its Fallout episode of the Extreme Rules PPV on Sunday. Smackdown had a 0.65 share in the 18-49 year audience, which made it the highest rated program on Tuesday night. This is also big increase compared to last week’s 0.53 share.
Smackdown Live featured a Town Hall meeting with Shane McMahon and the whole Smackdown roster, a women’s tag team title match between the champions The IIconics and The Kabuki Warriors. Also heavily advertised was a huge “career-altering” announcement from Daniel Bryan, but it never really came.
