For the second straight week, the overnight ratings for AEW Rampage have been released.
The show that was taped two days in advance did 466,000 total viewers with 196,000 in the all-important 18-49 demo. This is down from last week’s ratings that did 594,000 total and 316,000 in the 18-49 demo.
It should be noted that this is the overnight number and the actual rating won’t be released until Monday. Last week’s final number was 28,000 higher in overall total viewers than the fast nationals. Thus, if that trend continues, then Rampage would have also have a higher total viewership number.
CM Punk vs. Daniel Garcia, AEW World Tag Team Champions The Lucha Bros (Penta El Zero M & Rey Fénix) vs. The Acclaimed, Jade Cargill vs. Skye Blue, and FTW Champion Ricky Starks vs. Brian Cage in a Philadelphia Street Fight.
AEW will have to go up against SmackDown on FS1 for 30-minutes next week as SmackDown will be two and half hours long. AEW President Tony Khan is ready for the challenge as he took to Twitter to comment on the head-to-head competition.
