AEW Dynamite Viewership Down For Taped Episode But Still Beats Live NXT

All Elite Wrestling is still on top despite taping this week’s episode of Dynamite ahead of time.

AEW Dynamite drew 871,000 viewers overall (which is slightly down from last week’s 940,000) and came in at No. 8 for the night. It was defeated by two NBA games, two episodes of Sportscenter, Real Housewives of New Jersey, Tucker Carlson Tonight and Hannity.

Per Showbuzz Daily, NXT was up from last week with 769,000 viewers (up from 700,000) and came in at No. 35 with a .24 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That’s much lower than AEW’s .35 for the night.
