AEW Dynamite impressed critics since debuting on TNT. They even made a pretty impressive list that pro wrestling usually never sees.
In TV Guide‘s new Top 100 Television Shows list, AEW Dynamite found themselves right in the middle. The famous list of best television shows put AEW Dynamite at #57.
Seeing pro wrestling on this list is incredible rare as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE only cracked the list once. That took place in 2018 and they were placed “near the bottom,” and it “was notable because the show wasn’t good at all that year.”
AEW Dynamite beat out other very popular shows in 2020 such as The Walking Dead, Perry Mason, Westworld, Yellowstone, Law & Order: SVU, The Mandaloran, Supernatural, and Star Trek: Discovery.
This is a very good sign for AEW that they were able to so quickly insert themselves among the top television shows on the air.
