AEW Dynamite ratings down, NXT up from last week's modified format

AEW Dynamite averaged 819,000 viewers last night for their episode that aired from Daily's Place in Jacksonville with only essential personnel on hand.

The show finished 23rd in the 18-49 demo with a 0.34 rating.

The audience total was down 12 percent from last week, but Dynamite was only down three percent in the key demo. Both the viewership and rating number were right in line with the average over the last 10 weeks. 

Over on the USA Network, NXT was up 23 percent from last week's series low and averaged 669,000 viewers. In the 18-49 demo, NXT again finished out of the top 50 but climbed to 56th with a 0.20 rating, up 25 percent from last week.

Last week's NXT featured a modified format without any matches. This week's show had matches that were taped at Full Sail Live, also with only essential personnel in attendance.

Detailed demo ratings are not available for NXT since it was outside the top 50, but for Dynamite its strongest category, as usual, was men 18-49, where the show did a 0.45 rating. That was 10th on cable in that demo. 

As expected, coverage of the coronavirus pandemic on the news stations dominated the cable TV rankings. If you eliminated CNN and FOX News from the rankings, Dynamite would've finished second in 18-49, trailing only VH1's Black Ink Crew.
