– Last week’s Friday night Smackdown drew a final 1.98 (2.0) cable rating with 2.801 million viewers. The main event was Big Show, defeating Kane. Also, it should be noted that there was no top stars (Bryan, Cena, Orton, Batista)on the show.
Andrews Take: This was the lowest SD rating in some time, so low that it was the lowest rated smackdown since January. the main event did not help matters, Kane and Big Show in the main event? before that match you had Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio tear the house down and that should have been your main event. I understand the storyline reasons, but if you are aiming for match quality then you have to go with Ziggler’s match.
