AEW sees a ratings spike, while NXT remains flat

AEW received good news in the ratings for Wednesday night, Mar. 4, while NXT remained flat.

Per Showbuzz Daily, AEW netted 906,000 viewers for a .35 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 718,000 viewers for a .23 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is an increase of about 41,000 viewers from the prior week, with a big increase from last week’s 0.30 demo rating. For NXT, viewership increased by about 1,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating was unchanged.

AEW rose from 9th to 5th place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT moved down from 17th place to 20th place.

The raw viewership increase for AEW wasn’t huge, but it’s definitely welcome news to see the demo rating back bounce to its levels from January. As for NXT, there was essentially no movement in their viewership or demo rating, which is not what they want.

Overall, AEW had 188,000 more viewers than NXT, with a significantly higher demo rating.
