AEW and NXT both see an uptick in ratings

The ratings and viewership data are in for this week’s (May 6) NXT and AEW television shows.

Per Showbuzz Daily, Dynamite netted 732,000 viewers for a .28 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 663,000 viewers for a .18 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is an increase of about 39,000 viewers from the prior week, with a slight improvement from last week’s 0.27 demo rating. For NXT, viewership increased by about 26,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating rebounded from last week’s 0.16.

AEW rose from 16th to 12th place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT jumped up from 51st to 33rd place.

NXT’s viewership and ratings returned to their levels from two weeks ago, while AEW’s rating continues to slowly rise, reaching its highest mark since Mar. 25.

Here’s a breakdown of NXT’s audience and ratings share of the same demographic:

Total viewership for Wednesday night checked in at 1,395,000 pro wrestling fans.

Both shows went up this week. But considering that it was AEW’s first live Dynamite in a month, and NXT hyped up two major championship matches, do you think one or both of these shows should have seen an even bigger increase?
