Last night's TakeOver: In Your House fallout edition of NXT averaged 695,000 viewers on the USA Network, up 3.9 percent from last week. It's the sixth straight week the show has done between 668,000 and 700,000 viewers, so the audience level has been remarkably consistent.

There was heavy sports competition on the night with the NBA playoff game on TNT averaging 4.6 million viewers. The NHL playoff game on NBC Sports Network averaged just over 1.3 million viewers.

NXT drew a 0.19 rating in the 18-49 demo, the same number as last week and matching the 10-week average for the show.

Year-over-year, NXT was down 6.8 percent in overall viewers and down five percent in the 18-49 demo. Major sports were dark at this time last year, but -- of course -- NXT was airing on Wednesday opposite AEW Dynamite.

Here's a look at the last 11 weeks of NXT viewership and 18-49 demo numbers, along with the 10-week average prior to this week:
