WWE NXT draws best viewership of 2022

The episode was NXT 2.0's one-year anniversary show.

Tuesday's NXT averaged 728,000 viewers on the USA Network, up 6.4 percent from the previous week. It's the best viewership for NXT since last year's Halloween Havoc special.

Last night's show was NXT 2.0's one-year anniversary episode. It ended with a new NXT logo being revealed. The new logo has a black, gold, and white color scheme and doesn't include the "2.0" branding.

In the 18-49 demo, NXT finished 14th on the cable charts with a 0.15 rating. Though the overall viewership was up, NXT's demo rating was down 6.3 percent from last week.

NXT's ratings were actually down in most demos, but the overall audience was up due to a 10.5 percent increase with people over 50, which is traditionally NXT's strongest category. NXT also had a 15 percent increase from last week with men 18-49. That was offset by a 36.4 percent decline with females in the same age group, however.

As compared to the same week in 2021, which was the debut of the 2.0 format for the show, NXT's overall audience was down 5.5 percent while its 18-49 rating was down 28.6 percent.

Listed below are the last 11 weeks of overall viewership and individual demo ratings for NXT, as well as the 10-week averages in all categories. This week's show was up 14.3 percent in overall viewers and up 7.1 percent in 18-49 as compared to the recent averages.
