This past Wednesday’s rating of 0.48 is up 9.09% from last week’s rating of 0.44 in the key 18-49 demo.

The viewership number of last Wednesday night’s Grand Slam episode of Dynamite, which drew the third-highest audience in show history and the second-highest audience of the year and tied with the August 25 episode of Dynamite for the third-best key demo rating in show history, was up 52.5% from the same week in 2020, which, at the time, competed against the NXT brand, while the 18-49 key demo rating was up 50% from the same week in 2020.

Last Wednesday night’s Dynamite topped the night on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.48 rating in the 18-49 key demo, while Dynamite ranked #22 in viewership for the night on cable.
