With the Vice Presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris dominating the network and cable ratings and doing over 50 million viewers on various platforms, AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT ratings both fell last night.

Dynamite averaged 753,000 viewers on TNT, down 13 percent from last week. NXT was down almost the exact same percentage, averaging 639,000 viewers on the USA Network. That was down 12.7 percent from last week.

This was the lowest viewership total for AEW since July 8, which was up against the Keith Lee vs. Adam Cole double title match on NXT.

In the 18-49 demo, Dynamite averaged a 0.31 rating, down only 6.1 percent from last week. Dynamite finished 19th on cable in that category. NXT was 56th on cable last night, averaging a 0.16 rating, down 15.8 percent from last week.

Dynamite's rating in 18-49 was its lowest since August 29. NXT matched its lowest number since July 15 in that demo.

The combined audience of 1.392 million viewers was down 13 percent from last week. It's the lowest number since June 10.

Individual demo numbers are not available at this time for NXT since it didn't chart in the top 50. AEW's strongest number was a 0.41 rating in the men 18-49 category, but that still was only good for 19th in that demo on cable due to the debate and debate-related programming. Dynamite is generally top five in that category. Dynamite was also way down in people over 50 due to the debate, averaging a 0.26 rating.

Here's a look at the last 10 weeks of overall viewership numbers and 18-49 demo ratings for Dynamite and NXT:
