The viewership numbers are in for last night’s Wednesday night wrestling shows and it was a tale of two shows that headed in opposite directions.
While still coming out on top, AEW Dynamite fell to 734,000 viewers and a 0.29 rating, representing an almost 15% and 20% drop respectively, week-over-week.
NXT, on the other hand, closed the gap considerably with one of its best weeks in recent memory drawing 720,000 viewers and a 0.21 rating, the latter figure representing its strongest rating in the key 18-49 demo since October.
On the night, Dynamite placed #6 in the cable charts in that demo while NXT trailed behind in #24 position, however, along with its win in the usual 50+ category, NXT also came out on top in women 18-49 and women 12-34.
