AEW Dynamite defeats NXT in ratings by huge margin

AEW Dynamite and NXT were two very different show this week. Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, AEW delivered a live show with no audience in attendance. On the other hand, NXT did not have a single match and focused more on interviews.

According to a report by Showbuzz Daily, this week’s AEW Dynamite received 932,000 on average for their two-hour broadcast. They also got a .35 in the coveted 18-49 demographic. NXT managed only 542,000 with a .16 in the 18-49 demographic.

This is an increase from last week’s episode of Dynamite, which brought in 766,000 viewers with a .26 rating in the 18-49 demographic. NXT got an average of 697,000 viewers with a .21 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

The company continued to win in terms of ratings since the start of 2020.

    vince passing away is the best thing that could happen to the product. He was lazy before and has gotten even lazier with the whole coronavirus. He is obsolete, refuses to change, and refuses to walk away. Therefore, he has no value.

    Even when you factor that, NXT loses each week. At this point, it’s clear how the ratings will go. You either feel it doesn’t matter because whoever is watching NXT is not watching AEW, or your can look at it like the better investment for a company to sponsor is AEW over NXT.

    AEW did have a very good show this week. They seem to embrace the fact that they had to wrestle in an empty arena. Vince on the other had is having trouble adjusting. He replaying the royal rumble and the elimination change matches and having very few new matches. Like usual Vince is hurting his own product.

    NXT is never worried about ratings or viewership. They could walk right into an AEW arena and get more of a reaction then the current AEW wrestlers. NXT is about a bigger plan.

    Well seeing as NXT was advertised in advance as not being a wrestling show and being based on interviews etc, is it any surprise there was a huge drop off and AEW gained some of those viewers?

    Like every week though, and have said this before, we do not need to see viewing figures for either of these shows unless at least one of them starts breaking 1 to 1.5 million viewers every week.

    Well NXT did drop dramatically this week. I agree though that posting it each week is nonsense. I wouldn’t mind if they did all wrestling show ratings in one post

    Why is this a report every week? This doesn’t take numbers from people that watch it on dvr, network or something else entirely. The only time ratings should be a story is if it drops dramatically and you have a good source telling you why it did.

    Tells us again how good Cody’s bunghole tastes, Harrison, you pathetic mark. Of course AEW won big, they put on a show and WWE took the coward’s way out.
