AEW Rampage ratings down big against MLB playoffs

Source: ShowBuzz Daily

Friday night's AEW Rampage averaged 502,000 viewers on TNT, down 19.3 percent from the previous week.

This is the lowest audience for Rampage to date. With the exception of the First Dance episode that featured the debut of CM Punk, Rampage's numbers have fallen every week since the show premiered. The Grand Slam edition of Rampage two weeks ago bucked that trend for the first hour, but the two-hour average was lower than the previous week's one hour. 

In the 18-49 demo, Rampage fell to 15th on the cable charts with a 0.17 rating, down 32 percent from the previous week. That's also a series low, and it's below what Dynamite had been averaging when it aired in the same time slot in June.

Rampage was hit hard by MLB playoff competition. The NL divisional playoffs on TBS averaged nearly four million viewers, while the AL playoffs on FS1 averaged 2.6 million viewers. Portions of each game aired opposite Rampage, along with a college football game on ESPN that averaged 1.1 million viewers.

Ratings fell across the board in all age categories, with men 18-49 hit the hardest. That also was the case on Wednesday with Dynamite. Rampage dropped 35.1 percent in that category, drawing a 0.24 rating. People over 50 held up the best, dropping only 13 percent to a 0.20 rating.

Listed below are the overall viewership and individual demo ratings for Rampage since its debut on TNT in August:
