AEW got back to winning ways by drawing 717,000 viewers compared to NXT's figure of 610,000 viewers. NXT beat AEW last week with the Halloween Havoc show drawing 876,000 viewers. Last week's Dynamite drew 781,000 viewers.
The viewership figures for both NXT and AEW Dynamite were expected to be low this week as the companies went up against the Election Day for the US Presidency. All the major news outlets and networks focussed on Election Day coverage, and they all drew massive numbers.
When it comes to the demographic breakdown, all the ratings were not disclosed as the shows didn't chart in the top 50, which all featured news channels.
AEW, however, did get a 0.30 rating in the 18-49 demo, while NXT got a 0.14 rating in the same demographic. AEW ranked at #56 while NXT stood at the 68th spot in the Cable Top 150.
As expected, both companies witnessed significant drops due to all the Election Day news coverage.
