How Many People Tuned Out Of AEW Collision After Tony Khan Announced CM Punk Was Fired AEW

The viewership figure and demo rating for Saturday’s (September 2) edition of AEW Collision on TNT has been revealed.

Per Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, Collision drew 345,000 viewers. This is down from the August 26 edition that drew 552,000 viewers.

In the key 18-49 demographic, Saturday’s episode scored 0.11 rating. This is also down from the week prior that scored 0.16 rating. This is the lowest total viewership and demo rating in the show’s history.

The show aired opposite WWE Payback and the start of college football in the US.

However, the more interesting numbers might be in what the first quarter drew in comparison to the rest of the program.

Saturday’s broadcast opened with AEW President Tony Khan announcing that he fired CM Punk. The quarter drew 472,000 viewers.

After Khan’s announcement, the viewership dropped to 383,000 viewers, which is a loss of 19% of the audience.

The show went below 250,000 viewers by the end of the final full quarter, which featured Dax Harwood vs. Jay White with run-ins from Bullet Club Gold and The Young Bucks.

Also featured on the show, Bryan Danielson returned to represent Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat against Ricky Starks in a strap match at AEW All Out.
