But the Fox broadcast couldn’t beat ABC’s reruns in terms of total viewers
“WWE: Smackdown” once again battled its way to the top of Friday night’s primetime ratings. The Fox broadcast delivered the night’s best rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic with a 0.5 and 2.1 million total viewers overall.
But the live sporting event couldn’t beat ABC in terms of total viewers. Reruns of “Shark Tank” and “20/20” scored the most eyeballs across primetime, averaging about 2.7 million (and a 0.3 in the demo).
