The show aired at 5:30 p.m. Eastern due to a scheduling conflict with the NBA playoffs.

Friday's AEW Rampage, which aired in the afternoon due to a scheduling conflict with the NBA playoffs, averaged 292,000 viewers on TNT. That's down 43.6 percent from the previous week and is the lowest audience in the show's history.

The episode aired at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time and 2:30 p.m. Pacific, so this number is a complete aberration.
