Lowest P18-49 for Rampage in its history, including preemptions. Only the May 6 episode, which had a 5:30pm start, had lower total viewership (292k).— Brandon Thurston (@BrandonThurston) June 20, 2022
Highest Smackdown since April. Not as high as I had estimated based on fast affiliates.
Showbuzz should have ranking info soon.
First tweet should say *appearance, not appearances. Vince appeared in the opening few minutes of the program and not again.— Brandon Thurston (@BrandonThurston) June 20, 2022
Smackdown was #1 among broadcast primetime and cable for Friday in P18-49.— Brandon Thurston (@BrandonThurston) June 20, 2022
