Saturday night's AEW Battle of the Belts III averaged 437,000 viewers on TNT, down 17.1 percent from the previous edition of the special back in April. It's the lowest viewership of the three Battle of the Belts events to date. 

In the 18-49 demo, Battle of the Belts finished 12th in the cable rankings on Saturday with a 0.12 rating. That's down 33.3 percent from Battle of the Belts II and is less than half the rating the first Battle of the Belts show in January did.

The previous chart rankings were 10th for the first Battle of the Belts and 11th for the second, so -- relative to the competition -- these numbers are relatively stable. 

The audience retention from the previous night's AEW Rampage, which aired on the same station, was 93.4 percent of total viewers and 80 percent in the key demo. 

As with other Battle of the Belts shows, Saturday's edition featured three title matches, headlined by an ROH World Championship match between Claudio Castagnoli and Konosuke Takeshita.

Listed below are the overall viewership, 18-49 demo ratings, and chart placings for all three Battle of the Belts specials on TNT to date.
