The ratings and viewership data are in for this week’s (Sept. 23) NXT and AEW television shows.

Per Showbuzz Daily, Dynamite netted 835,000 viewers for a .32 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 696,000 viewers for a .18 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is a drop of about 51,000 viewers from the prior week, and a decrease from last week’s 0.34 demo rating. For NXT, viewership increased by about 7,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating remained steady at 0.18.

AEW fell from 3rd to 9th place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT dropped from 31st to 38th place.

AEW viewership couldn’t match last week’s level, and shows once again that it’s going to be tough to reach the million viewer mark as long as they are directly opposed by NXT. However they still finished in the top 10 for the demo rating, which means Tony Khan will be drinking a Little Bit of the Bubbly.

NXT’s results didn’t budge much from last week, which means they were walloped by AEW in the demo rating once again.

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