Ratings for AEW and NXT both plummet

The ratings and viewership data are in for this week’s (June 10) NXT and AEW television shows.

Per Showbuzz Daily, Dynamite netted 677,000 viewers for a .23 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 673,000 viewers for a .16 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is a decrease of about 53,000 viewers from the prior week, with a sharp decline from last week’s 0.29 demo rating. For NXT, viewership decreased by about 42,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating was way down from last week’s 0.20.

With all that being said, AEW moved up from 27th to 14th place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT rose from 45th to 35th place.

For AEW, the demo rating of 0.23 ties Dynamite’s all-time low from May 13, and the viewership ranked among the lowest the show has ever done. For NXT, their numbers are a big disappointment coming off the TakeOver: In Your House event.

These numbers are a stark reminder that we’re still stuck in the empty arena era of wrestling, with both shows struggling to find sustained live audience growth.

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