AEW Dynamite drew 1.018 million viewers on TNT and the simulcast on truTV was watched by 122,000 so the viewership for the live broadcast came in at 1.140 million total viewers. That is a drop from last week’s 1.409 million viewers.
Meanwhile, WWE NXT on USA drew 790,000 viewers. That is down from last week’s 845,000 viewers.
Both shows were likely impacted by stiff competition from Major League Baseball because there were two elimination games airing back-to-back on TBS.
Next week’s viewership could also be affected by baseball because the Cardinals will take on the Nationals in the National League Championship Series and the Yankees will face the Tampa Bay Rays or Houston Astros in Game 4 of the American League Championship series. The times are not set for those game but one of those games will air directly in competition with WWE NXT and AEW on FOX or Fox Sports 1.
