-- Running against no live edition of NXT, AEW Dynamite capitalized in a big way, generating 1.016 million viewers for yesterday's show, the highest overall audience since October 16, 2019, which was the second week that Dynamite was on TV. In the 18-49 demographic, Dynamite ticked up to a 0.37 rating, putting it in 7th place on the night among shows on cable and trailing two NBA playoff games which scored 1.32 and 1.24 in that demo. The 18-49 rating is the second highest in 2020, behind only an episode in January which pulled in a 0.38. NBCU did run a re-run of NXT on SyFy but that show didn't chart on the top 150 shows on the night, so figures are not available.
