Last week’s Grand Slam special episode of Dynamite was able to draw a total of 1.273 million viewers, while Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite was able to draw a total of 1.152 million viewers, according to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics and Showbuzz Daily.
This total is down 9.50% from last week’s Grand Slam episode of Dynamite, which drew a rating of 0.45 in the 18-49 key demo. This past Wednesday night’s rating of 0.45 is down 6.25% from last week’s 0.48 rating in the 18-49 key demographic. This past Wednesday night’s rating of 0.45 in the 18-49 key demo represents around 588,000 total viewers that watched last Wednesday’s Dynamite from that demographic. This is down 6.22% from last week’s 627,000 total viewers in the 18-49 key demo.
Last Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite featured Adam Cole vs. Jungle Boy, Cody Rhodes and Lee Johnson vs. Matt Sydal and Dante Martin, Penelope Ford and The Bunny vs. Anna Jay and Tay Conti, Dark Order and Orange Cassidy vs. The Hardy Family Office in a big 16-Man Tag Team Match to pay tribute to the late Brodie Lee and Sammy Guevara defeating Miro for the AEW TNT Title, which was the main event.
The viewership number of last Wednesday night’s episode of Dynamite, which drew the lowest viewership since the All Out go-home show on September 1st and which audience and key demo rating were down, but not too bad compared to what AEW Dynamite has done late this summer, was up 33.03% from the same week in 2020, which, at the time, competed against WWE’s NXT brand, while the 18-49 key demo rating was up 36.36% from the same week in 2020.
Last Wednesday night’s Dynamite topped the night on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.45 rating in the 18-49 key demo, while Dynamite ranked #29 in viewership for the night on cable. This is the sixth week that Dynamite has ranked #1 on the Cable Top 150, while the viewership is down from last week’s ranking of #22.
