With the title change in Manchester headlining the show last night, Smackdown saw an increase in their Nielsen ratings by 0.5. The rating this week was 2.60, with last week being 2.11. This rating beat last week, but didn’t beat the rating from two weeks ago, which was 2.69. Last weeks very low rating could be attained to game 6 of the World Series, and Smackdown happening during the prime hours of trick or treating on Halloween. As far as I know, last night did not have many mainstream events going on.
