Last night's AEW Dynamite averaged 883,000 viewers on TNT, up 36.1 percent from this past Saturday's episode. A fairer comparison might be that it was up 7.6 percent from the last time Dynamite aired on Wednesday, which was May 19.

In the 18-49 demo, Dynamite drew a 0.35 rating, up 66.7 percent from Saturday's show. It was also up 25 percent from the previous time the show aired on Wednesday. 

Dynamite returned to the level it had been averaging before being shifted around by TNT due to the NBA playoffs. It actually slightly surpassed the 10-week average of previous Wednesday shows, as shown in the chart below. 

Year-over-year, Dynamite was up 18.1 percent in overall viewership and up 20.7 percent in the 18-49 demo. That is being compared to when the show was running head-to-head against NXT, and it was also a week when NXT had a special episode with night one of last year's Great American Bash.

Viewership for Dynamite was the best since May 12. The 18-49 rating was the best since May 5.

Here's a look at the last 11 weeks of viewership and 18-49 demo ratings for Wednesday night Dynamites, along with the average of the last 10 weeks. The Friday and Saturday airings are factored out for a more fair comparison:
