Big Numbers For Dynamite Viewership, Huge Drops For NXT
Wednesday's Dynamite episode drew 932,000 viewers on TNT, topping the 542,000 viewers garnered by NXT on the USA Network by 72%, according to Showbuzz Daily.


AEW ranked #20 in the Cable Top 150, while NXT ranked #81. AEW ranked #65 in viewership, while NXT ranked #85 in viewership.

Last week's Dynamite episode drew 766,000 viewers and ranked #25 in the Cable Top 150, and #75 in viewership, so the audience was up 22%. Last week's NXT episode drew 697,000 viewers and ranked #42 in the Cable Top 150, and #83 in viewership.

This is the lowest NXT viewership since the show began airing on the USA Network during Wednesday nights last fall.

AEW drew a 0.35 rating in the 18-49 demographic, topping the 0.16 rating that NXT drew in the same demo this week by 119%. Last week's AEW show drew a 0.26 rating while the NXT episode drew a 0.21 in that demographic.

Both shows were impacted by the coronavirus pandemic this week. NXT aired with hosts Tom Phillips and Triple H introducing pre-recorded interviews with NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley, Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano and Finn Balor at the WWE Performance Center, with no matches and no crowd. Dynamite was moved from the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY to the home base of Daily's Place in Jacksonville, FL, with matches but no live audience, except for a few wrestlers sitting in to help provide some crowd noise.
