ESPN Draws Its Highest Viewership Of The Weekend For The Airing Of WWE WrestleMania 30

Becky Lynch ESPN

Viewership is in for Sunday’s ESPN’s special airing of WWE WrestleMania 30 and it overall delivered a pretty solid lariat for the cable TV giant. Mania 30 stepped out of the cable network TV cage with an 839,000 in total viewership, equaling to a 0.30 rating, four times less than Sunday’s breadwinner which happened to be AMC’s The Walking Dead, but still leaving it as ESPN’s top rated show for the weekend.

The full 240 minute airing of the Mania that heavily focused on The Undertaker’s streak ending as well as the epic rise of Daniel Bryan came away with a 0.49 rating in the male 18-49 demographic, putting it on the level of most network news coverage, but found itself incredibly low in the female 18-49 with an 0.18 rating.

Next week ESPN is set to air WrestleMania 32 and then right before Mania 36 fires off from The WWE Performance Center on April 5 they’ll air WrestleMania 35 to whet the wrestling palate.
