NXT’s ratings recover from last week, but still lag well behind AEW

The ratings and viewership data are in for this week’s (Mar. 25) NXT and AEW television shows.

Per Showbuzz Daily, Dynamite netted 819,000 viewers for a .34 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 669,000 viewers for a .20 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is a decrease of about 113,000 viewers from the prior week, with a very slight dip from last week’s 0.35 demo rating. For NXT, viewership increased by about 127,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating increased from last week’s 0.16.

AEW dropped from 20th to 23rd place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT rose from 81st place to 56th place. The news shows covering the coronavirus pandemic are still dominating the top 20, and it will probably be that way for a while.

NXT recovered from last week’s viewership crash, but these numbers are still below their previous results in 2020. For AEW, it’s a good sign that the demo rating largely held up, but their viewership continues to fluctuate by 100,000 or so from week to week.

Here’s a breakdown of AEW viewership and rating in the 18-49 demo:
