Countdown to AEW Dynamite special tops 600,000 viewers on TNT


Last night's Countdown to AEW Dynamite special averaged 631,000 viewers on TNT, up from the 390,000 that tuned into a similar show the night before the company's All Out pay-per-view last month.

The hour-long special aired at 8 p.m Eastern time. It finished just outside of the top 25 for the night in the 18-49 demo with a 0.20 rating. That rating was up from the 0.14 that the Countdown to All Out did, though that previous special was on a Friday night at a later time slot and less promoted.

In other wrestling-related ratings news, the season premiere of Total Divas, featuring Ronda Rousey, averaged just 252,000 viewers. That was an all-time series low and more than 100,000 viewers fewer than the lowest rated episode of the previous season.

AEW Dynamite debuts tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern on TNT. It will go head-to-head with NXT.

Here's what's been announced for the Dynamite premiere:

  • Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz vs. Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks
  • Nyla Rose vs. Riho to determine the inaugural AEW Women's Champion
  • Hangman Page vs. PAC
  • MJF vs. Brandon Cutler
  • An appearance by Jon Moxley
  • Cody Rhodes vs. Sammy Guevara
