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

Per Showbuzz Daily, Dynamite netted 741,000 viewers for a .29 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 558,000 viewers for a .12 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

For AEW, this is a decrease of about 103,000 viewers from the prior week, with a decline from last week’s 0.32 demo rating. For NXT, viewership was down by 52,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating was even lower than last week’s 0.15.

AEW fell from 3rd to 21st place in the demo rating for the night, while NXT dropped down from 51st to to 62nd place.

The top 20 cable shows in the demo rating were all dedicated to ongoing coverage of the second impeachment trial of former President of the United States, Donald Trump, who incited an insurrection at the Capitol Building on Jan. 6. That explains why both AEW and NXT fell so far in the overall rankings for the demo rating.

AEW’s ratings and viewership dropped down to their levels from two weeks ago. NXT’s 0.12 demo rating is tied for its lowest mark over the last year, and the show has now failed to reach 600,000 total viewers for three of the previous seven episodes.

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