Last night's NXT averaged 744,000 viewers on the USA Network, down 11.5 percent from last week. It was the lowest number NXT has done in April, including the week where TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one went head-to-head with AEW Dynamite on Wednesday.

NXT finished 11th on the cable charts with a 0.22 rating, down slightly from last week's 0.23. It matched the number that NXT's Tuesday debut drew two weeks ago.

From the individual demo categories, 18-34 was up from the previous week while everything else either stayed the same or went down. NXT finished sixth overall with men 18-49. 

Here are the numbers in the individual categories, along with the week-to-week changes:

  • People 18-49: 0.22 (down 4.4 percent)
  • Women 18-49; 0.19 (even with last week)
  • Men 18-49: 0.25 (down 7.4 percent)
  • People 18-34: 0.11 (up 10 percent)
  • Females 12-34: 0.07 (down 22.2 percent)
  • Males 12-34: 0.15 (even with last week)
  • People 25-54: 0.26 (down 3.7 percent)
  • People 50+; 0.36 (down 12.2 percent)

Year-over-year, NXT was up 16.8 percent in viewership and up 37.5 percent in 18-49, which -- of course -- compares to a time when the show was running opposite Dynamite on Wednesday nights. 

Here's a look at the last 11 weeks of NXT viewership and individual demos, as well as the 10-week averages prior to this week:
