Viewers were down a whopping 26% from last week's live episode, which scored a 1.07 rating and averaged 1.38 million viewers.
As noted last week, there usually isn't a notable difference in the ratings between a live show and a taped show. However, there have been massive swings in the past month with the live shows doing much better than the taped episodes, and that continued again this week.
PWTorch noted that it was the least viewed episode in over three years since the Monday night experiment. You can get more demographics info about the rating at PWTorch by clicking here.
