AEW Dynamite's TBS debut averaged 1,010,000 viewers on Wednesday night, up 3.6 percent from the final episode on TNT. It’s just the second time since October 6 that the show has topped one million viewers.
In the 18-49 demo, Dynamite drew a 0.43 rating, up 16.2 percent from last week. That’s the show's best number in the demo since September 29.
This is also the first week that Dynamite aired live on the West Coast since October 6.
Dynamite finished second on the cable charts in 18-49, trailing only an NBA game on ESPN that averaged 1.7 million viewers and drew a 0.53 in 18-49.
The show was up in every age group with the exception of people over 50. In that category, Dynamite was down 2.8 percent from the previous week.
The biggest increase, by far, was in the 18-34 age group, where the week-to-week jump was 79 percent.
The show also increased more with women than with men. In the 18-49 age group, women were up 20 percent and men were up 10 percent. In 12-34, the difference was even more dramatic. Females in that demo doubled last week's number, while males were up 45 percent.
As compared to this week last year, when Dynamite aired head-to-head with NXT New Year's Evil and also against news coverage of the United States Capitol insurrection, Dynamite was up 52.6 percent in overall viewers and up 72 percent in the demo.
Listed below are the last 11 weeks of overall viewership and 18-49 demo numbers for Dynamite. The debut show on TBS was up 8.7 percent in viewers and up 22.9 percent in 18-49 from the 10-week averages prior to this week.
