In a recent press release, TNT, the network home of AEW Dynamite revealed the stations’ plans to preempt episodes of Dynamite starting in mid-August. The reason for the change is to fit in the NBA playoff schedule. The NBA season was pushed back due to the COVID lockdown.
The breakdown of dates is as follows. The August 19th episode of AEW Dynamite will air on Saturday, August 22nd, at 6 PM. We expect the show to take a huge hit in the ratings that night.
The August 26th and September 16th episodes will air at 8 PM on Thursday. It will be really interesting to see how the ratings come out as there is no NXT to complete with that night.
