Alfred Konuwa of Wrestling Inc. and Forbes reports that last Friday’s AEW Rampage episode was able to draw a total of 477,000 viewers in the fast nationals ratings as well as 212,000 viewers in the 18-49 key demo.
This past Friday’s episode of AEW Rampage featured Adam Cole vs. Trent Beretta in Singles action, The Bunny, Nyla Rose and Penelope Ford battling Kris Statlander, Red Velvet and “Legit” Leyla Hirsch in a Women’s Division Trios Match, Shawn Spears vs. Andrew Everett in a one-on-one match and AEW World Tag Team Champions Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus of Jurassic Express defending their titles against the Dark Order’s John Silver and Alex Reynolds, 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 491,000 – 510,000 range. Last week’s episode of Rampage drew a total of 588,000 viewers, with a 0.24 rating in the 18-49 key demo and if the final viewership number follows the trend, then it means that this past Friday’s AEW Rampage viewership numbers will be lower than that of last week’s episode. It is expected that the final viewership of AEW’s Rampage is set to be released sometime on Monday.

477K is down 34% (P2+) and 38% (18-49) vs. TNT’s time slot a year ago (Ocean's 11). Of course, the final number will soften the blow a bit but it will still be a very sizable drop.— Alfred Konuwa (@ThisIsNasty) January 15, 2022
