Chris Jericho and Tony Khan Say AEW Defeated NXT Again

Chris Jericho and Tony Khan Say AEW Defeated NXT Again
As noted, NXT Great American Bash Night 2 episode beat the Fyter Fest Dynamite Night 2 episode in viewership war this week, but not in ratings for the 18-49 demographic.

This is the third straight week where NXT has topped AEW in viewership. As he did last week, Chris Jericho pointed to how AEW won in the key demographic.

"Stoked to say that #AEWDynamite won the ratings demo war again last night! You're welcome.... [smiley with sunglasses emoji] [thumbs up emoji] @AEWrestling #Truth," Jericho wrote, attaching the Nielsen chart like he did last Thursday.

Tony Khan also issued several comments on the NXT vs. AEW ratings this week and said he considered AEW ranking #7 in the Cable Top 150 to be a huge win.

"If anyone thinks I consider being a top 7 show on cable anything but a huge win, they're incorrect. A win in the demo is a win in the business, and this is a business. I know the industry wasn't talking about the demo as much 20 years ago, but it's what drives our revenue today," he wrote.

Khan posted the actual Nielsen chart, as Chris Jericho did last week, and elaborated on the 18-49 demographic.

"Here's the chart the industry uses to analyze performance. The leftmost color-coded column is 18-49 demo. The rightmost color-coded column is total viewers. The chart's ranked by 18-49 viewers. We love & value all viewers, in or outside that demo, but that's how we score the game," he wrote.

Khan posted another tweet and said his family celebrates when AEW makes the Top 10.

"Why tweet about ratings? Because I'm thrilled about these numbers & so are TNT. My family drinks A Little Bit of the Bubbly (Chris's actual brand) on Thursdays when we're in the top 10, this is the 3rd time in 4 weeks, & I'm grateful for the great #AEW fans that make it possible!," he wrote.
