AEW & WWE NXT ratings down for week two of special episodes

In terms of total viewers, NXT won the latest installment of the Wednesday Night War, averaging 759,000 viewers to AEW Dynamite's 715,000.

NXT on the USA Network was down 4.2 percent in total viewers from last week's night one of the Great American Bash. In the 18-49 demo, the show averaged a 0.20 rating, down 9.1 percent. NXT finished 24th on cable in that demo. 

AEW Dynamite on TNT was down from the 748,000 viewers that the previous week's opening night of Fyter Fest averaged. In 18-49, the show averaged a 0.28 rating, topping NXT again but down 3.4 percent from last Wednesday. The number was good for seventh place overall on cable in the demo.

The combined audience of 1.474 million viewers was down four percent from last week but still above the 10-week average. 

As it does almost every week, AEW won in every demo category except for people over 50, where NXT had a huge advantage of 0.39 to Dynamite's 0.27. AEW had a similar advantage in men 18-49 with a 0.39 rating to NXT's 0.26. The other demos were all relatively close.

Here's a look at the last 10 weeks of viewership and 18-49 demo numbers for both shows:
