Last week’s editions of “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious BIG” and “SmackDown! Live” posted gains in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

This week’s episodes endured losses.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, 10PM drama “Unsolved” drew a 0.38 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 953,000 viewers.

This week’s episode marked the fifth “Unsolved” installment. It delivered the show’s lowest numbers to date in both columns.

Granted, its “SmackDown! Live” lead-in was weaker this week. Whereas last week’s broadcast drew a 0.99 in the demo and 2.89 million in viewership, this Tuesday’s edition of the WWE program drew a 0.78 and 2.58 million.

Last week’s “SmackDown!,” of course, featured the announcement that Daniel Bryan had been cleared to the ring. This week’s episode did not have a hook of that magnitude.

It also faced stiff competition from ABC’s 8-10PM comedy block.
