Eyepatch Danielson brought viewers back to AEW Collision after a rough November

The Dec. 2 episode’s number weren’t amazing, but even against strong college football competition they were the show’s best since October.

All Elite Wrestling

The numbers are in for the Dec. 2 episode of Collision on TNT.

According to Wrestlenomics, the latest Collision drew an audience of 451,000 and did a .14 rating among 18-49 year olds. Both are up big from the previous Saturday when the show aired opposite WWE’s Survivor Series premium live event. They’re also the best numbers Collision’s had since October, turning the page on a rough month which saw it air directly opposite or on the same days as a WWE show in three of November’s four weeks.

It wasn’t without competition, either. College football conferences had their championships last week. While Dec. 2’s most watched games aired in the afternoon & early evening, more than 17 million people were watching the two that started at 8pm ET (per SportsMediaWatch, FOX’s Big Ten title game between Michigan & Iowa had 10.02 million viewers & a 5.1 demo rating, and the Florida State/Louisville ACC final on ABC with an audience of 7.03 million & a 3.8 in 18-49).

Wrestling fans like that Bryan Danielson guy, I reckon. We’ll see what they decide to watch this Saturday, when Collision goes up against a WWE PLE — NXT Deadline — for the final time this year.

In the meantime, here’s a look at each its viewership and demo rating over the course of its history:
