30 Years Of Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho Anniversary Special Helps AEW Dynamite Top Post-TakeOver 31 Edition Of WWE NXT In Ratings

The numbers are in for last night’s AEW Dynamite and NXT shows and both programs took a significant tumble in viewership and key demographic ratings, going up against the VP Debate that dominated broadcast and cable networks.

Dynamite was watched by an average of 753,000 viewers and scored a 0.31 rating (19th spot on the night) in the 18-49 demographic while NXT trailed behind at 633,000 viewers and a 0.16 rating (56th spot).

Viewership was down an almost identical 13% for both shows and was the lowest since the July-August timeframe.

The VP debate generated an audience of upwards of 51 million across multiple channels, with all four major broadcast networks covering it from the 9-10 PM timeslot, which is where it really hurt the wrestling shows.
