WWE Backstage Viewership Drops Without CM Punk

The viewership numbers are in for the latest episode of WWE Backstage, a weekly talk show.

The show that aired on FS1 at 11pm ET drew 121,000 viewers. This is a drop of 33% from last week’s 180,000 viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily. 

The episode ranked #125 on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.05 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is a decrease from last week’s show that ranked #104 with a 0.10 rating. Last week’s show marked the first time that it made the Cable Top 150.

FOX made it known on Monday that Punk would not be appearing on this week’s episode for fans who were wondering. However, Triple H was the featured guest but was not in-studio in Los Angeles as he called in live from the WWE Performance Center.

The official premiere of the show did 49,000 viewers with a 0.02 rating while the November 12th episode did 100,000 viewers.

This week’s episode of RAW that featured the main event of Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins, drew an average of 2.109 million viewers, down from last week’s 2.127 million viewers. 

This was despite the fact that it was the post-Survivor Series episode of RAW, which has historically received a bump in viewership from interested fans.
