Tony Khan On Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite vs. NXT Ratings War

Tony Khan

As previously reported, WWE NXT’s Great American Bash Night Two Special defeated Night Two of AEW Dynamite’s Fyter Fest Special in total viewership, but not the key demographic when it comes to the Wednesday Night War ratings.

WWE NXT’s Great American Bash was able to garner 759,000 viewers, topping Dynamite’s Fyter Fest Special by 6.2%, which garnered 715,000 viewers. However, Dynamite drew a 0.28 rating in the 18-49 demographic, beating NXT by 40%, which drew a 0.20 rating.

AEW President and CEO Tony Khan took to Twitter and said that if anyone thinks he considers being a top 7 show on cable anything but a huge win, they are incorrect.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“If anyone thinks I consider being a top 7 show on cable anything but a huge win, they’re incorrect. A win in the demo is a win in the business, and this is a business. I know the industry wasn’t talking about the demo as much 20 years ago, but it’s what drives our revenue today.”

Tony Khan then posted the actual Nielsen chart and elaborated on the 18-49 demographic.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“Here’s the chart the industry uses to analyze performance. The leftmost color-coded column is 18-49 demo. The rightmost color-coded column is total viewers. The chart’s ranked by 18-49 viewers. We love & value all viewers, in or outside that demo, but that’s how we score the game.”

Tony Khan then said that his family drinks A Little Bit of the Bubbly on Thursdays when we are in the top 10.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“Why tweet about ratings? Because I’m thrilled about these numbers & so are TNT. My family drinks A Little Bit of the Bubbly (Chris’s actual brand) on Thursdays when we’re in the top 10, this is the 3rd time in 4 weeks, & I’m grateful for the great #AEW fans that make it possible!”
