AEW Dynamite Viewership Strong Despite Move to Saturday Night


-- Last week's AEW Dynamite was pre-empted on Wednesday due to the NBA playoffs and instead on Saturday evening against some strong competition in sports playoffs, the UFC and even parts of TakeOver XXX. Despite that, Dynamite held his viewership very well, generating an audience of 755,000 and a 18-49 rating of 0.31, very small decreases from the week before in its regular Wednesday timeslot. In that key demo, Dynamite continued its run of top 10 finishes, finishing #5 on the night trailing on three basketball games and UFC Fight Night.
