The ratings and viewership data are in for this week’s (Apr. 1) NXT and AEW television shows. Both shows witnessed a downward trend in the data.

Per Showbuzz Daily, Dynamite netted 685,000 viewers for a .25 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 590,000 viewers for a .15 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is a decrease of about 134,000 viewers from the prior week, with a large drop from last week’s 0.34 demo rating. For NXT, viewership decreased by about 79,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating significantly decreased from last week’s 0.20.

AEW dropped from 23rd to 37th place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT fell from 56th to 74th place.

These numbers reflect that it’s very difficult to keep an audience right now for these empty arena shows. The results approximately match AEW’s all-time low from Dec. 18, while NXT’s demo rating is as low as it’s ever been.

AEW’s viewership has decreased by 247,000 from where it stood two weeks ago.

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

Total viewership for Wednesday night checked in at 1,275,000 pro wrestling fans.
