Wednesday night's AEW Dynamite averaged 1.175 million viewers on TNT, down 10.9 percent from last week's All Out fallout episode. Despite the drop, it was still the fourth-highest audience in the history of the show.

In the 18-49 demo, Dynamite topped the cable TV charts with a 0.44 rating, down 29.4 percent from last week. After virtually tying WWE Raw last week with the same rating but a slightly higher number of viewers, Dynamite beat Raw for the second straight week in 18-49. Monday's Raw, which went against the season premiere of Monday Night Football, drew a 0.43 rating in the demo.

Dynamite also led all of cable in the 25-54 demo with a 0.52 rating and finished second in 18-34 with a 0.27. The latter number was actually up from the previous week, which is the only major category the show had an increase in.

With next Wednesday's Dynamite being a pay-per-view quality event and featuring the largest crowd in company history at Arthur Ashe Stadium, it's likely that the streak of beating Raw will continue next week. Raw also goes up against a marquee NFL team with the Green Bay Packers facing the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football next Monday.

As compared to this same week in 2020, when Dynamite aired opposite NXT, Dynamite was up 32.6 percent in total viewers and up 29.4 percent in the 18-49 demo. It's the 12th straight week that Dynamite has been up at least 10 percent year-over-year.

Listed below are the last 11 weeks of Dynamite overall viewership and 18-49 demo numbers, as well as the 10-week average. This week's episode was up 9.3 percent in total viewers and up 7.3 percent in 18-49 compared to the recent averages.
