AEW Dynamite viewership for the TBS debut featuring Hangman Page vs. Bryan Danielson II

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

Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite television show produced 1.010 million viewers for TBS, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The viewership count was up from the 975,000 viewership total from last week’s final edition of Dynamite on TNT.

Powell’s POV: The big increase came in the key demographic, as Dynamite finished second in the 18-49 demo in Wednesday’s cable ratings with a 0.43 rating. That’s up from last week’s 0.37 in the same demo. Monday’s WWE Raw finished with a 0.45 rating in the same demo. An NBA game on ESPN topped Dynamite for the first spot in the cable ratings, though AEW did top the second game of ESPN’s doubleheader. The move to TBS is beneficial for AEW in that the show now has a delayed West Coast feed, whereas it was airing before prime time on the West Coast when the NHL moved to TNT.

  1. The “delayed west coast feed” probably had nothing to do with the ratings. The ratings have been within a 35k range for 3 straight weeks, which is basically a rounding error with numbers around 1 million, and obviously those first 2 weeks still had the delayed feed. Before that, they’ve been in the 880-950k range since October, which is still a small difference. This small bump could have been anything from people still being on vacation to a chunk of the east coast getting snowed in and having work/school canceled.

  2. I thought removing the live feed would produce an actual tangible difference. At least they gained in the Khan demo. That should give him something to brag about for false relevance.
