AEW Rampage Draws Lowest Audience In Show History For Preempted Saturday Episode

"AEW Rampage" has been getting pre-empted by the NHL Playoffs for a little over a month, and the schedule shuffling has taken a severe toll on the ratings.

ShowbuzzDaily is reporting that this weekend's "Rampage" was viewed by 284,000 viewers, the lowest rating in the history of the program, with a .07 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is tied for the worst 18-49 viewership in the show's history. Not only was the show the lowest rated in its history but also suffered a 23% drop in audience from the last time the show was broadcast at 10 p.m. on a Saturday, and a 42% drop in the 18-49 demo since that broadcast.

The show was headlined by The Mogul Embassy's Brian Cage and Swerve Strickland picking up a victory over The Dark Order's Jon Silver and Alex Reynolds.

Saturday night was dominated by the Seattle Kraken's win over the Dallas Stars, which briefly stayed their elimination from the playoffs before finally being knocked out by the Stars in the final game of the series on Monday. Elsewhere in the ratings, "SportsCenter" and boxing won the night.

This mark's the fifth week in a row that "Rampage" has been pre-empted and it can be hard to gauge where the program stands, especially with a third major AEW program being added to the weekly lineup soon. "Rampage" will continue to be pre-empted as the final show before AEW Double or Nothing will be broadcast on May 27, the Saturday night before the PPV.
