Not as good as last week, but not as bad as the low points of the past couple months... it’s SmackDown LIVE from Tues., June 18!

It’s .56 overall share of the 18-49 year old audience was down from the week prior, and gave WWE the second highest rated original program on cable last night. The blue brand trailed an episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Down around 71K from last week, the overall audience clocked in at 1,859,000. That made SmackDown the 8th most watched cable original on Tuesday night, trailing the usual Fox News shows, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and OWN’s The Haves and the Have Nots.

And that’s that. As with Monday’s Raw numbers, this is probably what we can expect for the summer. Decide if you think it’s good, bad, or indifferent while perusing SmackDown’s numbers from the past six months:

June 11 - 1.93 million / .60
