AEW Dynamite viewership for the show headlined by Miro vs. Sammy Guevara for the TNT Title

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

Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite television show produced 1.152 million viewers for TNT, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The viewership count was down from the 1.273 million viewership total from last week’s show.

Powell’s POV: Dynamite delivered a 0.45 rating and finished first in the 18-49 demographic in the cable ratings, which is down from last week’s 0.48 in the same demo. Monday’s WWE Raw finished with a 0.48 rating in the same demo. Considering how loaded last week’s lineup was compared to this week, the decreases were expected.

  1. “Considering how loaded last week’s lineup was compared to this week, the decreases were expected.”

    In the last 6 weeks of Dynamite, they’ve had the first episode with CM Punk, the first episode with Danielson and Cole, and the loaded show last week, yet their viewership is the lowest its been since the week before Punk debuted.

    Instead of using all the publicity to create positive momentum, they keep putting garbage on TV and keep losing the viewers that decide to check the show out every time there’s a big name debuting or PPV caliber card being presented.

    • What are you talking about? They aren’t putting on garbage. They dont have to have a stacked show every week.

      Momentum is VERY much in the hands of AEW.

      • Their viewership is LOWER than it was 5 weeks ago. With 3 huge debuting wrestlers, a PPV, and the show at Arthur Ashe Stadium (that was excellent BTW), they still lost viewers over that timeframe. Dynamite pops up for every new debut/loaded card, but goes right back down after that with no appreciable gain over time. They still haven’t matched the viewership of the inaugural episode.

        The 9/17 Rampage is one of the worst hours of wrestling TV to ever be seen, and the 2nd hour of the 9/24 Rampage was almost as bad as that. Rampage has lost viewership the last 5 shows in a row.

        If your idea of momentum is LOSING VIEWERS then you don’t know what the word means. AEW creates a buzz, gets people to check them out because of the buzz, then loses most of those people the very next week.

    • Oh please, just f… off.

      • Another brilliant, insightful response from an AEW fangirl.

        The facts are irrefutable, no matter how hard the IWC tries to hide it.

  2. So a decrease in NXT means interest in NXT is fading, but continuous losses for AEW are just to be expected? Just so I get this straight.

    • 1.152

      These are the last six weeks of Dynamite viewership. Please explain where the “continuous losses” are.

      • Rampage has lost viewership for 5 consecutive weeks after the Punk debut, reaching an all time low this past week, yet you haven’t once referred to their ratings as “tanking” the way you do NXT every chance you get.

        As for the numbers you just posted, they literally show that 3 debuting WWE stars, a PPV that you and the other internet “journalists” creamed themselves over, and a novelty outdoor show with a great card still ended up with lower viewership over a 6 week period, confirming the point you’re trying to refute.

        • This again? Are you ever going to grow up and just admit that you are the ultimate AEW fan? You watch every show and immediately share your wannabe Jim Cornette hot takes. If memory serves, NXT did its lowest number in many months when I wrote the headline regarding the number tanking. You started bitching about Dynamite losing a certain number of viewers that week and wondered why I didn’t write that it tanked. Dynamite finished first on cable television that week. I’m still waiting for you to explain how in the world anyone could say a show tanked when it finished first in the cable ratings. Rather than address that, you move the goal posts to Rampage. You watch AEW obsessively, yet in your warped mind anyone who enjoys the product is either a fanboy or a biased reporter. God forbid someone enjoy something that you claim to despise. Your routine is tiresome. Think of the hours of your life that you dedicate to watching something you hate. It’s not healthy.

      • Yes. You knew what I was talking about. Even so, Dynamite being back to prePunk levels can’t be considered great under any circumstance. You’re better than this, Sir. I don’t want to believe you’re in Khan’s pocket too.

        • I’ve never even spoken with Tony Khan, so it would be tough to be in his pocket. I really wish people would stop with tribalism nonsense. Save the “must love one, must hate the other” shit for politics (hell, I wish it didn’t exist there). It gets really tiresome to have everyone else project their shit on those of us who don’t care about the company banner. I can’t even write anything complimentary or critical of either company without someone alleging bias.
