AEW Dynamite viewership for the All Out fallout edition with the debuts of Bryan Danielson, Ruby Soho, and Adam Cole

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

Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite television show produced 1.319 million viewers for TNT, according to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.com. The viewership count was up from the 1.047 million viewership total from last week’s show.

Powell’s POV: This is the second-highest viewership total in Dynamite history, so there was a nice boost coming off the All Out pay-per-view and the new additions of Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, and Ruby Soho to go along with the recently signed CM Punk. Dynamite delivered a 0.53 rating and finished first in the 18-49 demographic in the cable ratings, which is up from last week’s 0.38 in the same demo.

  1. I bet that count would go all the way up to 1.5 million if they announced the release of QT Marshall.

  2. Nice number, but I honestly thought they’d get closer to the 1.5 million debut show. Punk, Cole, and Danielson have been worth about 350k viewers for Dynamite. I’m genuinely surprised it’s not more than that.

    • ” Punk, Cole, and Danielson have been worth about 350k viewers for Dynamite. I’m genuinely surprised it’s not more than that.” – why?

      WWE’s numbers are due to habitual viewers. People watching because they are just used to WWE as a brand. People watching at that time slot out of habit.

      There is little evidence that there are very many pro-wresting fans out there to watch linear programming. See the NXT numbers for evidence.

      Raw still beat Dynamite… in young women. And old people. That latter are just tuning in by habit, and the young women are attracted to various acts in WWE that are designed to appeal to them.

      I remain surprised that AEW is doing as well as it is. I suspect that Tony Khan has maxed out the actual wrestling fans. He can try other kinds of acts to appeal to the general audience, but that is the problem that WWE has run into, with doing “sports entertainment” instead of wrestling.

  3. Yes it was 1.047 million the week before, but it was 1.172 million the week before that, so really it only was a 147k gain, so yes it was up but not as much as it should have been.

    • If you want to have some real fun, look at the title for that drop in viewership for AEW on 9/1 and compare it to the title for the drop in viewership for NXT on 9/7.

      The September 1 edition of Dynamite was down 125,000 from the week before and Powell’s title for that post was:

      The September 7 edition of NXT was down 116,000 from the week before and Powell’s title for that post was:

      And yet he has the shameless little balls to complain when people call him out on his obvious bias.
