WHAT’S SCI-FI ABOUT WRESTLING? OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD RATINGS

September 1, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Who cares if wrestling has little to do with Syfy Network’s mandate? Wrestling has traditionally attracted cable viewers, as was amply proven this week when the science-fiction network’s WWE SuperSmackdown Live attracted 3.3 million viewers, including 1.45 million in the 18-49 demographic. That made it the most-watched cable network on Tuesday. If it had been a broadcast network, it would have ranked fourth — ahead of Fox and the CW from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The show, which aired live from Wichita, KS is due to be rebroadcast in SmackDown’s regular time period on Friday.
