Last night’s 1/7 WWE Smackdown on the USA Network, the debut episode of the program on the network, drew 2.76 million viewers on Thursday night.

That number is way up from last week’s final episode of the show on Syfy, which drew 1.66 million viewers on the New Year’s Eve holiday.

The number is also a big increase from what the show was averaging on Thursday night on Syfy. So the change in networks looks to be a positive for Smackdown going forward.
