Last night’s WWE NXT premiere on the USA Network drew 1.179 million viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.
The show ranked #4 for the night in the Cable Top 150 18-49 demographic, behind American Horror Story, Basketball Wives and Black Ink Crew. NXT ranked #19 for the night in viewership.
These numbers are for the first hour that aired on the USA Network. We do not have viewership for the second hour that aired on the WWE Network. Both hours will begin airing on USA with the Wednesday, October 2 episode.
To compare, Monday’s RAW drew an average of 2.272 million viewers, up from last week’s 2.130 million viewers. Tuesday’s SmackDown drew 2.064 million viewers, barely up from last week’s 2.061 million viewers.
USA aired a special NXT episode back on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 and that show drew 841,000 viewers, and ranked #22 on the Cable Top 150.
