-- As noted earlier here on the website, last Friday night's WWE SmackDown! on Syfy scored a 1.7 cable rating, down from a 1.8 rating two weeks ago. That's tied for the lowest rating in the four weeks since SmackDown! came to the network. The show's premiere on the network also scored a 1.7 on October 1st. For the night, SmackDown! was the #5 show on cable TV among males 18-34. It was #2 among males 18-49, behind the MLB Playoffs. The show's ratings were down for the 18-34 & 18-49 demos, as well as males 18-34 & 18-49, and males 12-34. It was up for ages 12-17, though, which saved the overall rating.
