WWE NXT draws lowest viewership since moving to Tuesdays

Tuesday night's episode of WWE NXT averaged 665,000 viewers on the USA Network, down 4.3 percent from last week.

It's the lowest number for NXT since March 17, which was when it was still airing on Wednesdays head-to-head with AEW Dynamite. However, it was only slightly behind the numbers of two and three weeks ago and marks the seventh straight week the show has done between 665,000 and 700,000 viewers.

In the 18-49 demo, NXT drew a 0.17 rating, down 10.5 percent from last week. It's the lowest number in that category for the show since May 25.

The show faced tough sports competition in the form of the NBA Draft Lottery, which averaged almost 2.2 million viewers on ESPN and the Suns vs. Clippers Western Conference Finals game that drew nearly 5.3 million viewers.

Year-over-year, NXT was down 15.4 percent in overall viewers and down 10.5 percent in 18-49. That was running on Wednesdays against Dynamite but with no major sports competition.

Here's a look at the last 11 weeks of viewership and 18-49 demo numbers for NXT, along with the 10-week average in both categories:
