AEW Dynamite Viewership gets a Boost; Trumps NXT Again
- After last week's disappointing viewership, AEW Dynamite bounced back this week and beat NXT Again!
- While AEW Dynamite made the top 10 in 18-49 demo for the night, NXT fell below the #50 mark!
AEW Dynamite, after a lackluster performance last week, finally received a boost in its viewership this week. According to ShowBuzzDaily, Double or Nothing's go-home edition of Dynamite drew 701,000 viewers, up from last week's 654,000 (which also happens to be Dynamite's record-low viewership of 2020).
NXT, on the other hand, didn't have a good night at all. The black & yellow brand was able to draw only 592,000 viewers, down from last week's 604,000. Despite a considerable fall, last night's show still scored better than the lowest-rated NXT episode (March 18), which drew 542,000 viewers.
AEW Dynamite Up Over 50% in the 18-49 Demo; NXT Falls Below the #50 Mark!
The most recent edition of AEW Dynamite took the #7 spot in the 18-49 demographic for the night with a rating of 0.26. Last week's episode finished at #15 with a 0.23 rating.
As for NXT, it fell from #46 to #53 in just a week in the same demo and averaged a 0.13 rating.
As mentioned above, last night's Dynamite featured the final build to Double or Nothing. The Young Bucks and Hangman "Adam Page" made their surprise returns after a two-month absence.
NXT featured Rhea Ripley vs. IO Shirai, Dexter Lumis vs. Roderick Strong, and Karrion Kross in action.
That being said, expect loaded episodes from both shows next week. A Cage match between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher will be the highlight of NXT. AEW will be presenting the post-Double or Nothing edition of Dynamite on TNT.
