By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

AEW Dynamite television show delivered 1.219 million viewers for Wednesday’s episode on TNT, according to The viewership count was up from the 688,000 viewers who watched the previous week’s episode, which was opposed by NXT Takeover Stand & Deliver Night One.

Powell’s POV: A tremendous number for Dynamite. AEW drew 700,000 viewers for the March 31 edition when they went against a standard NXT episode. Dynamite finished second in the 18-49 demographic with a .44 in Wednesday’s cable ratings. Last week’s Dynamite finished fifth in the 18-49 demographic with a .28 in Wednesday’s cable ratings.

  1. These moves only do better for nxt & aew. Look forward read how the two go about their shows.
    Good times ahead. Hi ho!

  2. Anybody who didn’t think there would be a bump coming the first week people didn’t have NXT to watch is delusional. Let’s see if they can keep them.

    • Ought be fine. Two nights of great wrestling? What’s the trouble in that save saturation or anything else to watch…
      The war parties will pick their butts not recognizing their smell.

      • I’ll use the tried and true method of waiting and seeing what happens instead of relying on your crystal ball, thank you.

  3. More than I expected, but not by much. I figure they’ll settle in somewhere around 950k-1m.

    That show they put on was decent but the worst segments of the night were the opening and closing matches. They’ve got their core audience and it wouldn’t shock me if about 150k drop off next week after that first truly unopposed effort.
