Wednesday Night Ratings: NXT Wins the Total Viewership Battle; AEW Wins Coveted Demo


-- The numbers are in for last night's AEW Dynamite and NXT shows and for the first time since the shows debuted head-to-head, NXT won the battle in total viewership though AEW maintained its top position in the 18-49 demographic. NXT was watched by 916,000 viewers with a 0.30 rating in the 18-49 demo while Dynamite was watched by 893,000 viewers with a 0.39 rating in the 18-49 demo. NXT's viewership was actually the highest the show has gotten since AEW began airing in the first week of October, no doubt getting a post from the Survivor Series storyline that brought several Raw/Smackdown superstars to the show.

-- On the night, AEW finished 8th in the coveted demo while NXT wasn't too far behind at #14. Across the other demos, AEW actually won them all except in the 50+ which NXT won handily.

-- Here is a look at the week-by-week ratings battle.
