AEW aired Rampage at their normal time on Friday, but they had very stiff competition. A very special night in pro wrestling was airing on Peacock and it showed with the viewership.
Spoiler TV reports that AEW Rampage pulled in 456,000 viewer and a .15 in the 18 to 49 demographic on April 1st. We’ll have to see how things turn out in the future, but that wasn’t a stellar rating. The WWE Hall of Fame likely had a lot to do with that low number.
AEW Rampage brought in 398,000 viewers on average, including 166,000 in the 18 to 49 demographic. That brought in a .13 in the key demo. They were preempted to 11:30 because of March Madness.
The March 11th episode of AEW Rampage brought in a fast national number of 480,000. No demographic rating was available.
The March 4th episode of AEW Rampage brought in 545,000 viewers and a .22 in the 18 to 49 demographic.
February 25th’s episode of AEW Rampage brought in an overnight average of 437k, which is down from last week. That is 7% down from last week, but 34% down from what was playing on TNT last year at the same time.
We’ll have to see if AEW’s B Show can pull things up. They are certainly putting in enough work to build good cards, but they are also dealing with a difficult time slot.
