The viewership number of last Saturday night’s Dynamite episode, which drew the best audience for AEW on this temporary timeslot due to the NBA Playoffs, was up 2.5% from the same week in 2020, which was going head-to-head against WWE NXT TV at the time, while the 18-49 key demo rating was down 4.6% from the same week in 2020.
