AEW is set to debut a new Saturday television show, Collision, and there is a lot of hype surrounding that show. AEW Rampage was on Saturday last week, and the viewership was not a good sign at all for a future Saturday television show.
Alfred Konuwa tweeted out to reveal the early viewership number for AEW Rampage on Saturday, May 13th. According to the fast national numbers, AEW Rampage brought in a viewership of 287,000 viewers, but less than 100k of those viewers, 90k, were in the 18 to 49 demographic.

AEW Rampage’s April 22nd episode drew a fast national number of 336,000 viewers for their special Saturday show. Out of that number, 125k was part of the precious 18 to 49 age demographic that advertisers want to see. This is not a good sign, especially considering the fact that Tony Khan is about to announce a weekly Saturday show.
AEW Rampage drew 639,000 viewers on average, including a 0.21 P18-49 rating. They started about 20 minutes early this week due to the NBA games. This was Rampage’s highest total viewership since September 24th, 2021, and its highest key viewership since April 8th, 2022.
