WWE NXT (11/16/21) sets record low key demo rating on USA Network, draws lowest total viewership since February



The ratings for WWE NXT 2.0 are in and they are disappointing.

NXT drew 574,000 live viewers, which is down from the 603,000 viewers the show previously drew a week ago, according to Brandon Thurston of WrestleNomics.

It did a 0.11 rating for the 18-49 demographic. The show did a 0.15 rating one week ago. It ranked #55 in the top 150 shows on cable for the night, down from last week’s #36 ranking. Because it wasn’t ranked inside the top 50, we don’t have data for the rest of the demos.
