Last Friday night’s AEW Rampage drew the lowest audience as well as the lowest key demo rating in the show’s history, which was expected due to the late timeslot of 11:30PM ET on TNT, instead of the 10PM ET usual timeslot due to the NCAA’s coverage. The NCAA’s game between Chattanooga and Illinois on TNT topped the night on the Cable Top 150 with a 1.07 rating in the 18-49 key demo and drew 3.470 million viewers.
