For the second consecutive week, AEW Dynamite smashed it in viewership numbers, scoring over 1 million live viewers for the second straight week.
TNT appear to be over the moon with AEW’s recent success, as they issued a press release earlier today, praising the recent high ratings. The press release reads as followed:
TNT’s AEW: DYNAMITE continues domination as Wednesday’s #1 cable program in P18-49 for the second week in a row. See highlights below:
575K P18-49 / 150K P18-34 / 1.15M P2+
Week 93 of AEW was up 11% vs. last week
Year-to-date, AEW: Dynamite is up +5% in P18-49 and +3% in total viewers.
Night two of FYTER FEST was the strongest premiere for AEW this year in P18-49.
Both nights of FYTER FEST were up significantly vs. last year, +48% in both P18-49 and total viewers.
Both nights of FYTER FEST 2021 were the #1 cable program of the day.
Night two of FYTER FEST featured AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. vs. Nyla Rose, a Texas Death Match with IWGP US Champ Jon Moxley vs. Lance Archer, Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Spears, Orange Cassidy vs. The Blade, and Frankie Kazarian vs. Doc Gallows.
Founded by CEO, GM and Head of Creative Tony Khan, AEW is a new professional wrestling league headlined by Cody & Brandi Rhodes, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson), Chris Jericho, Sting, Hangman Page, MJF, Miro, Darby Allin, Hikaru Shida, Dr. Britt Baker and Jon Moxley. 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 on TNT airs Wednesday nights from 8-10 p.m. ET and continues to attract the youngest wrestling audience on television. AEW’s multi-platform content also includes AEW DARK and AEW DARK: ELEVATION, two weekly professional wrestling YouTube series, BEING THE ELITE, a weekly behind-the-scenes YouTube series, and AEW UNRESTRICTED, a weekly podcast series. The new, hour-long show AEW: RAMPAGE debuts Friday, Aug. 13, on TNT at 10 p.m. ET.
How long AEW will be able to maintain the streak of 1 million viewership shows remains to be seen, but with another special Dynamite in store this week, as well as one or two pretty decent signings reportedly on the way, Tony Khan’s promotion is white hot right now.
