AEW had to move Dynamite last week due to the NBA Playoffs. That change did a number on their viewership in a big way. Their viewership fell nearly 40% from the previous week with that Friday night move.
Dave Meltzer reports that AEW Dynamite saw an overnight average 500,810 viewers. That was down a whopping 38% from last week. They were also in a much different time slot. Last week’s AEW Dynamite brought in 821,000 viewers with a .28 in the coveted 18-49 demographic.
The previous week’s episode of AEW Dynamite brought in an overnight average of 936.000 viewers this week with a .31 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That episode saw Miro walk away as TNT Champion after demolishing Darby Allin.
AEW Dynamite’s Blood & Guts special drew an overnight average of 1.09 million viewers with a .42 in the 18-49 demographic. This put AEW Dynamite as #1 on cable for the first time ever.
Last week brought in an average of 889,000 overnight viewers with a .33 in the 28-49 demographic. They brought in an overnight average of 1.1 million viewers the previous week and scored a .37 in the 18-49 demographic.
The week prior brought in 1.219 million overnight viewers. They also captured a .44 in the 18-49 demographic. That was an incredible jump from the previous week, but it was also their first night without WWE NXT competition on Wednesdays.
