AEW Dynamite Viewership, Rating Remain Solid on Rare Thursday Airing


-- Airing one night later than usual on Thursday but getting to run unopposed, AEW Dynamite generated a total viewership average of 813,000, up from Saturday's airing which got a respectable 755,000 and even higher than the last time the show aired on Wednesday (8/12) which got 792,000. In the 18-49 demographic, Dynamite drew a strong 0.29 but fell out of the top 10 for the first in many weeks, finishing in 11th spot. Next week, Dynamite returns to its normal Wednesday time slot while also going unopposed with NXT airing their weekly episode on Tuesday. Based on the recent trends, Dynamite could very well top 1 million viewers.
