The XFL returned, but are people watching? It seems that even fewer fans are tuning in every week.

Showbuzz Daily reports Saturday’s games saw a decrease in viewership. The first game on ABC pulled in 2.051 million viewers. They earned a .5 rating in the 18-49 demographic which was down 16.7% from last week.

Game two was on FOX and they didn’t even crack 2 million viewers with 1.914 million. That number is down 17.6% from the previous week. The 18-49 demographic was pretty much the same as last week with a .6 rating.

Sunday’s game on ESPN brought in 1.473 million viewers which was down a huge 41% from the last game on ESPN. They did a .47 rating in the 18-49 demographic which was down 49.4% from the previous game as well.


They also aired a Sunday game on FS1. That game earned 1.004 million viewers which was down 26% from the last time FS1 hosted an XFL game this season. They brought in a .37 rating in the 18-49 demographic which was also down 27.5%.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
