Alfred Konuwa of Wrestling Inc. and Forbes reports that last Friday’s AEW Rampage episode was able to draw a total of 517,000 viewers in the fast nationals ratings as well as 245,000 viewers in the 18-49 key demo, with a 0.19 rating.
Last Friday’s episode of AEW Rampage featured Adam Cole taking on Evil Uno in Singles action, AEW TNT Champion Sammy Guevara defending his AEW TNT Title against A.H.F.O.’s Isiah Kassidy, Thunder Rosa vs. Mercedes Martinez in Women’s Division Singles action and FTW Champion “Absolute” Ricky Starks putting his FTW Title on the line against Jay Lethal, which was the main event.
The final viewership number is usually around 3-7% higher than that of the fast nationals ratings, so the viewership number should be in the 532,000 – 553,000 range. Last week’s episode of Rampage drew a total of 601,000 viewers and a total of 323,000 viewers in the 18-49 key demo, with a 0.25 rating and if the final viewership number follows the trend, then it means that the viewership number of Rampage last Friday night will be lower than that of last week’s episode.
Last Friday’s episode of AEW Rampage faced huge competition from the Olympics Opening Ceremony, which had a total preliminary audience of 6.95 million viewers. It is expected that the final viewership of AEW’s Rampage is set to be released sometime today.

Tony Khan's tweeting during the show didn't seem to help maintain interest but I like the enthusiasm.
