AEW Rampage will continue to air in different time slots the next two weeks due to both the NBA and NHL playoffs.
For the second straight week, this Friday's show will air at 5:30 PM Eastern due to the NHL playoffs on TNT. The following Friday (May 20th), Rampage will air at 7 PM Eastern due to the NBA playoffs according to TNT's schedule.
Tony Khan announced the news about this Friday's showtime during his weekly appearance on Busted Open Radio Wednesday.
Last Wednesday saw Rampage's debut in the late-afternoon time slot -- the earliest ever time for the program. The show averaged just 292,000 viewers -- down 43.6% from the week prior and the lowest audience in the show's brief history. The show's .11 rating in the 18-49 demo was also a historical low for Rampage.
This Friday's episode (taped after tonight's Dynamite) will see reigning TNT Champion Scorpio Sky defend against former teammate Frankie Kazarian. Additionally, Ruby Soho will face Riho for the first time ever in the quarterfinals of the women's Owen Hart Foundation Tournament.
