NXT TV viewership declines to new low for the Tuesday night era

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Tuesday’s NXT television show produced 697,000 viewers for USA Network, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The viewership count was down from the 761,000 viewers who watched last week’s show.

Powell’s POV: Ouch. This was the lowest number the show has delivered since moving to Tuesday nights and its worst overall number since March 31. NXT finished 25th in the Tuesday cable ratings with a .17 in the 18-49 demographic. Last Tuesday’s NXT show finished 21st in the cable ratings with a .18 in the 18-49 demographic.

  1. Is WWE RAW stinking up the “WWE” name to the point that the stink spreads to WWE NXT?

    That isn’t a serious question, but wtf are NXT ratings lower while unopposed on Tuesdays than they were on Wednesday?

    • This is wwe’s fault . WWE SHOULD BE heavily advertising NXT on raw each and every monday. In fact, wwe should take talent which is not being used on raw/sd and throw them onto NXT.

      I hope the start of the nba playoffs will lead to a drop in aew’s viewership and in the stupid demo which speech impediment and wwe-anti christ dave meltzer drools over every week.

      If nxt is going to do these type of numbers on tuesdays, it would be better to just put the show back on wednesdays so it can try to at least eat way at aew’s numbers. At least, it will hurt the wwe’s enemy.

      • You mean advertisers care about the demo right? Pretty sure advertisers are more important than your straw men.

        • Yes , advertisers care about the “demo” invloving 18 to 49 year olds and their purchasing powers. The problem is there is still an on -going “pandemic”. I love that word “pandemic”. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs and are struggling from a financial standpoint so their puchasing powers are in a downward spiral.

          • Yeah, meanwhile right wingers line up to do hits on Fox News about how the working class is doing so well we need to kick everyone off unemployment
