How did the last show before Elimination Chamber do?
- Friday's episode of WWE Smackdown scored a 1.96 rating with 2.68 million viewers. Those numbers are down ten and sixteen percent, respectively, from the week before and it is the end of a five-week streak of post-2.0 rated shows.
The show ranked #6 among cable shows for the night, #6 among males 18 - 34 and #5 among males 18 - 49. The male 12-17 was down 45%, possibly due to the All Star weekend lead-ins on ESPN and TNT which lead the night in the ratings.
