After Tony Khan boasted about his relationship with Warner Brothers Discovery, AEW Dynamite network partner, TBS has returned praise!
After a ratings success in both the key target demographic as well as in overall viewership as noted earlier, now the network that airs AEW Dynamite, TBS, has made an official comment.
Piling on praise for the program, the press release reads:
“TBS’ “AEW Dynamite” ranked as the #1 cable program in 18-49 on Wednesday, reaching over 1.175M viewers, including 500K viewers in the key demo for the first time since June. Please see ratings highlights and program details below.
• Ranked #1 on cable for Wednesday among P18-49 • +4% among P18-49 and +14% among P2+ VS. prior week’s episode
“Last night’s “AEW: Dynamite” was live from Albany, NY, and featured the AEW Grand Slam Tournament of Champions semifinals with “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson facing “Lionheart” Chris Jericho, and three-time former TNT Champion Sammy Guevara battling three-time former AEW World Champion Jon Moxley to determine who will compete for the AEW World Championship next week at AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam. In addition, the high-octane night included some firm words from MJF, AEW World Tag Team Champions Swerve in our Glory (Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland) defending against The Lucha Bros. (Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix), Jungle Boy taking on Jay Lethal, Powerhouse Hobbs in action against Matt DiMartino, and AEW Interim Women’s World Champion Toni Storm & Athena battling Serena Deeb & Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.
“For the first time in many years, AEW is offering an alternative to mainstream wrestling, with a roster of world-class talent that is injecting new spirit, freshness and energy into the industry. “AEW: Dynamite” airs every Wednesday from 8-10 p.m. ET on TBS and attracts the youngest wrestling audience on television.”
AEW Dynamite continued to dominate the other cable contender it has flipped back and forth with in past weeks as TBS came out on top of Bravo’s reality offering of affluent women fighting, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
