Last week, the AEW and NXT ratings had different behaviors: while AEW had a great improvement, NXT remained stable, but with low numbers, as a consequence of the NBA Draft. Comparatively, AEW once again surpassed NXT in viewership and rating.
The results of both programs were:
Pete Dunne – NXT November 25, 2020 Candice LeRae beat Ember Moon Kushida beat Timothy Thatcher Cameron Grimes beat Jake Atlas
STAIRS FIGHT: Pete Dunne beat Kyle O’Reilly
The Inner Circle – AEW Dynamite November 25, 2020 Hangman Page beat John Silver Powerhouse Hobbs beat Lee Johnson Angelico and Jack Evans beat Top Flight The Inner Circle beat SCU
AEW FEMALE CHAMPIONSHIP: Hikaru Shida beat Anna Jay The Butcher and The Blade beat PAC and King Phoenix
► Ratings AEW and NXT November 25, 2020
This week, there was a delay – normal in the United States of America – in the delivery of the results, due to the Thanksgiving holidays, so the results of cable television on Wednesday night were only released. So, the AEW and NXT audiences were:
AEW Dynamite: 710 thousand
NXT: 712 thousand.
NXT, increased a 12% audience with respect to the previous week. Its rating was 0.20, that is, it rose 43%, and it was also higher than the 2020 average, which is 0.19.
AEW, decreased by 16% viewership compared to the previous week. Its rating was 0.26, that is, it fell 30% compared to the previous week, and lower than the 2020 average, which is 0.31.
Once the fighting competition between NXT and AEW returned, both shows have been hurting both despite having good posters and headline fights in the AEW case. This week, there was a wide dominance of the news, although the Thanksgiving festivities affected all the programming on Wednesday night; however, AEW managed to stay within the 15 highest rated programs.
Remember that rating is what matters most to advertisers, and based on this index is that the TV programs are positioned.
