Results for last night's AEW and NXT episodes:

AEW got 766k viewers, #25 ranking, and a 0.26 rating in the key demo

NXT got 697k viewers, a #42 ranking, and a 0.21 rating in the key demo.

Both shows got hit hard by the sports and news coverage over the coronavirus with AEW taking the bigger hit numbers wise. Just two shows in the Top 15 were not news and/or sports related and only one did less than what AEW generated for viewers.

50+ demo was the only group that was almost the same as last week for both shows.

I have a feeling it will hurt SD too and RAW as well in the ratings if this all keeps up.

Yeah probably will for at least the next few weeks considering how fast things have moved elsewhere in sports and entertainment.

Although with the lack of sports competition for the time being, it could also be somewhat beneficial as well.

AEW and NXT might be able to get by with next week's shows if they just air the dark matches that were taped recently and work on some pre-produced segments that wouldn't need a crowd or even an arena for it. After that it starts to get tougher for AEW and less so for NXT since they have the PC.

The age of the average NXT viewer is most susceptible to coronavirus - so that is unfortunate.

I applaud AEW's traditional viewing block for showing concern and interest in the pandemic while still pulling off a ratings victory.

Yeah.

The numbers were up compared to last week but within the 2.4 to 2.5 million range they had been doing this year so far baring the Cena return one.

So they didn't really take advantage of the lack of sports but then again still had to deal with their usual competition for Friday. Monday will probably be different since that usually has less stiff competition for non-sports.

Don't people usually go nuts about the AEW demos even when the viewership is shit? Why is it the viewership with SmackDown and not that giant sexy demo?

Network shows are treated different than cable shows when it comes to ratings.

Network usually does way better when it comes to that stuff because everyone pretty much has all the network channels while cable channels is more dependent on the provider. That's why Showbuzz and Nielsen keeps them separate for ratings reports.

I can understand why they'd be kept separate -- one is network and one is cable. But why is a demo audience important to one but not the other?

Ad rates for network shows are usually higher which is why those shows tend to cost more to make and/or get canceled quicker if they don't meet the higher demands.

With Smackdown, FOX needs a higher key demo average than usual to offset the huge sums of money they spent for the show and to counter wrestling bringing in less ad money than other sports or entertainment shows. Its why FOX's original expectations were around 3-4 million and a constant 1.0 average since they felt both would at least let them break even on ad money.

172k increase is good but doesn't seem like they are really taking advantage of the situation.

Probably should have been larger considering the current circumstances for television and even in these times, 3rd hour still dragging the numbers down.

Wouldn't be surprised if this week's SD and next week's RAW doesn't have a noticeable bump since WWE already showed the format they are sticking with for the time being. NXT made the smart decision to change their format for this week's show due to the circumstances.

NXT got hammered big time for last night's AEW vs NXT shows.

AEW got 932k viewers, #20 ranking, and a 0.35 rating in the key demo

NXT got 542k viewers, a #81 ranking, and a 0.16 rating in the key demo.

News shows still dominated the rankings but AEW had sizeable increases in a several key demo areas and steady elsewhere or smaller increases.

Since NXT didn't rank in the Top 50, the demo breakdowns were not listed.

#81 for NXT surprises me, they lost to a Paddington cartoon. The number of viewers sounds about right for a recap show.

I hope AEW cracks 1 million soon, they've been on a roll and deserve it.

That's around the number NXT got last time they aired a special episode with no actual wrestling. Pretty much confirms NXT's diehard core is in the mid 500k range.

Considering Smackdown, RAW, and AEW all got a similar boost range, that probably means wrestling isn't going to see any real major boosts in numbers despite not having to worry about any sports competition for a while.

Both wrestling and daytime soap operas are in a prime position to gain tv viewers and neither is likely to it seems.

Probably still a year away from knowing if that's the actual case. Right now, upper 900k seems to be AEW's limit with a pretty solid core in place.

Monday Night War needed around 2 years to build up their tv audiences to the level needed for the eventual boom to happen and that was with 2 already established companies. Only NXT is similar to that level of establishment but their experience with actual weekly tv is a lot newer.

I would consider myself a die-hard NXT fan. It's my favorite of all the brands.

That said, I watched only Dynamite last night knowing NXT was going to have no actual live wrestling.

It looks like AEW'S gained the the viewers NXT lost this week, but maybe they aren't splitting the audience as much as I'd speculated. Looks like there is only around 150k people who are sway the needle so to say one way or the other.

There's 4 left. All are suspended in production now but 3 tape about 4 weeks in advance and the other (Days of Our Lives) tapes about 8 months in advance. Days was about to film their Christmas 2020 episodes so they should be good to go for a while.

Decent numbers for ESPN considering the circumstances but RAW dropping that low pretty much means people quickly tired of WWE's weak efforts for their empty arena shows.

Results for last night's AEW and NXT episodes:

AEW got 819k viewers, #23 ranking, and a 0.34 in the key demo.

NXT got 669k viewers, #56 ranking, and a 0.20 in the key demo.

No demo breakdowns for NXT since it didn't rank in the Top 50 for the 2nd week in a row.

News shows took 22 spots in the Top 25.

Edit: According to WrestlingInc, last night's NXT was the least viewed episode in series history for a non-special show on USA Network. Last week holds the all-time low record but that didn't feature any new matches aired.

Like with RAW, didn't take long for people to get tired of WWE's format for empty arena shows.

Also didn't help that it was arguably the least appealing show out of all at the PC soo far.

The PC shows are hurting WWE. If they aired re-runs and classic matches only and did 'eh' ratings, it'd be expected.

Instead, they are pushing the biggest stars they have currently - they aren't giving fans any time to 'miss' WWE and tune back in big-time when crowds are back. If they continue taping after Mania they will have to find a way to maintain these numbers minus Goldberg, Cena, Undertaker, Brock, Roman and Edge.

They better hope fans really want to see Drew face Orton or Seth and Braun face, IDK, Baron Corbin?

The problem with these PC shows is it exposes how sterile or stale WWE shows are without a crowd and them not willing to think out of the box to fix it.

Like their solution for the available roster lacking in numbers is to just air lengthy past matches. The problem with that idea is that has been taking away valuable time that could have been used to improve Mania's poor build.

Then you have them taking way too long to change things up with how they tape the shows which is why a lot of it feels awkward to watch and WWE not wanting to steer away from their typical routine.

The longer this goes - I will start to wonder if WWE will be able to bounce back from all of this a bit - viewers, attendance, ppv pricing. It just seems like a recipe for disaster where the fanbase could shrink significantly.

And WWE being the biggest game in rasslin' town means that not's good for everyone else too.

They definitely should have ran classic footage. Got no clue why they are doing what they are doing, or why anyone is to be honest. It's all garbage and it's all going to hurt them.
