The ratings and viewership data are in for this week’s (June 3) NXT and AEW television shows.

Per Showbuzz Daily, Dynamite netted 730,000 viewers for a .29 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 715,000 viewers for a .20 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is a decrease of about 97,000 viewers from the prior week, with a decline from last week’s 0.32 demo rating. For NXT, viewership decreased by about 16,000 viewers from the prior week, but the demo rating was slightly up from last week’s 0.19.

AEW moved down from 4th to 27th place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT dropped from 24th to 45th place. A plethora of news shows crowded their way into the top 25 spots.

The overall conclusion here is that NXT’s numbers mostly held steady from last week, while AEW saw a big drop in viewership. AEW’s advantage in the demo rating remains significant for now.
