Dynamite Back to Over 1 Million Viewers With PPV Fallout
The numbers have just been released for last night's edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT, which aired on its normal timeslot but without NXT competition.

Wednesday's Dynamite episode drew 1.016 million viewers (+9.5% from last week) on TNT, topping the 838,000 viewers garnered by Tuesday's NXT Super Tuesday II by 21%, according to Showbuzz Daily.

AEW ranked #7 in the Cable Top 150 for the 18-49 demo and #55 in viewership.

Last week's Dynamite episode drew 928,000 viewers and ranked #8 in the Cable Top 150, and #61 in viewership.

This is the best AEW viewership of 2020 and the third-best viewership of all-time. Their TNT premiere on October 2 drew 1.409 million viewers while the October 9 episode drew 1.018 million viewers. Their third episode drew 1.014 million viewers, but this is the first time the show has hit 1 million viewers since then.

AEW drew a 0.37 rating (+2.8%) in the 18-49 demographic while NXT drew a 0.22 in the same demo this week. Last week's AEW show drew a 0.36 rating while the NXT episode drew a 0.26 in that demographic.

This week's 0.37 rating in the key demo is the second-best of the year, going back to the 0.38 that the Bash at the Beach special drew on January 15. This is the eighth-best 18-49 demographic of all-time.
