How did the Smackdown replay perform?
- This week's WWE Smackdown replay on Syfy scored 31,559 in social media activity. This is about half of the 2012 average on Friday nights. Smackdown was ranked #3 on cable TV Friday night, trailing a big number for the Bulls vs. Knicks NBA game and Nick's SpongeBob SquarePants show.
The replay score was ranked #4 out of 5 replays this year. Only the April 13 replay of the April 10 post-Wrestlemania 28 special drew a lower social media activity score. (Credit: Trendrr.TV via PWTorch)
