AEW had to air Dynamite on a new time and day of the week due to the NBA Playoffs. This Friday night move has not resulted in the best viewership for the company at all. Last week did see a bit of an increase, but it still was not spectacular.
According to Wrestlenomics, AEW Dynamite drew an overnight average of 487,000 viewers with a .19 in the 18-49 demographic. This is not a very high number, but it is still up 20,000 from the previous week’s viewership.
AEW Dynamite drew 462,000 viewers last week. That was down from the previous week’s average by around 40,000.
Dave Meltzer reported that last week’s AEW Dynamite saw an overnight average 500,810 viewers. That was down a whopping 38% from the previous. They were also in a much different time slot. The previous 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.
