It was also the most-watched telecast in FS1’s entire history with 6.37 million viewers. It dominated over the rest of the competition in the night, not only being the only program to reach the 2.0 barrier, but also to break past 1.0. The network’s post-game special managed to bring in a 0.7 in the night as well.

Meanwhile, “WWE Smackdown” managed to tick up one tenth on USA, from its previous 0.7 to a 0.8 this week. FX’s “Atlanta” continued to hold steady on the network with a 0.4 once again also, while “If Loving You is Wrong” returned with a 0.6 on OWN.
