The viewership numbers for last night’s September 22 AEW Dynamite ‘Grand Slam’ show at Arthur Ashe Stadium have been revealed.
As per Brandon Thurston of WrestleNomics, the show drew 1.273 million viewers, and a 0.48 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
For comparison, this past Monday’s Raw, which had SmackDown’s Roman Reigns on the show, drew 1.793 million viewers, and 0.49 in the 18-49 demo, meaning AEW just about missed out on beating Raw in the key demo.
Those numbers make Dynamite ‘Grand Slam’ AEW’s third highest show ever both in viewers and 18-49. #1 for both is the first ever episode, and #2 for both is the post-All Out show a couple of weeks ago.
It ranked #1 for the day in cable originals in 18-49, beating second place Real Housewives of Bravo which did a 0.39 in the demo.
It should also be noted there were many premieres on broadcast, most notably The Masked Singer, which did 4.7 million viewers in total and 1.11 in the demo.
The show had over 20,000 fans in attendance at the stadium, and played host to a dream match between Kenny Omega and Bryan Danielson, which went to a time limit draw.
The main event of AEW Dynamite ‘Grand Slam’ saw Britt Baker retain the AEW Women’s World Championship over Ruby Soho.
