Tuesday night's Halloween Havoc edition of NXT averaged 746,000 viewers on the USA Network, up 23.1 percent from last week. That tied the show's second-highest viewership since it was rebranded as NXT 2.0.

In the 18-49 demo, NXT finished 11th on the cable charts with a 0.18 rating. The show had been hovering around the number 30 spot for the last month. The rating is up 28.6 percent from last week and is the third-highest number NXT has drawn in 18-49 since the show's rebranding.

The increased numbers came despite game one of the World Series airing head-to-head with NXT and averaging nearly 11 million viewers on Fox. There were also two NBA games on TNT, with the early game averaging 1.4 million viewers and the late game averaging 1.2 million.

NXT was sixth on the cable charts when factoring out sports-related programming. 

The show was up across all age groups. The biggest increases were with people 18-34, which were up 62.5 percent, and with males 12-34, which were up 75 percent. The male 18-49 demo was only up 18.2 percent, likely due to the sports competition.

As compared to Halloween Havoc last year, NXT was down 14.8 percent in overall viewership and down 28 percent in the demo. Halloween Havoc was running head-to-head with AEW Dynamite last year, but it didn't have competition from the World Series or NBA.

Listed below are the last 11 weeks of overall viewership and individual demo numbers for NXT. This week's show was up 11.4 percent in viewers and up 12.5 percent in 18-49 as compared to the recent averages.
