Week 63 of the Wednesday Night War saw AEW Dynamite defeat WWE NXT in viewership and ratings.

Wednesday's taped "Holiday Bash" edition of Dynamite drew 775,000 viewers (-3.85% from last week) on TNT, topping the 698,000 viewers (-8.9%) garnered by last night's live "A Very Gargano Christmas" edition of NXT on the USA Network by 11%, according to Nielsen via Showbuzz Daily.

AEW ranked #5 in the Cable Top 150, while NXT ranked #40. AEW ranked #68 in viewership, while NXT ranked #71 in viewership.

Last week's Dynamite show drew 806,000 viewers and ranked #3 in the Cable Top 150, and #62 in viewership. Last week's NXT drew 766,000 viewers and ranked #34 in the Cable Top 150, and #67 in viewership.

It should be noted that NXT and Dynamite did not air head-to-head this week. Dynamite began on TNT right after NXT went off the air on the USA Network due to a NBA game that aired in the normal AEW timeslot.

AEW drew a 0.32 rating in the 18-49 demographic while NXT drew a 0.19 in the same demo this week. Last week's AEW show also drew a 0.32 rating while the NXT episode also drew a 0.19 in that demographic.

The numbers for both shows were fairly normal this week. NXT was down 9% from last week, despite being unopposed. NXT was also down 16% from the same week in 2019. Dynamite had a late start time and was down 3.9% from last week, despite the NBA lead-in. There was no Dynamite episode for this week in 2019.

The NBA game between the Bucks and the Celtics on TNT at 7:30pm topped the night in the 18-49 demographic on the Cable Top 150, with a 0.80 rating, drawing just 2.003 million viewers. Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC topped the night on cable in viewership with 3.439 million viewers, ranking #9 on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.25 rating in the key 18-49 demo.

A Holly Dolly Christmas on ABC topped the night on network TV in viewership with an average of 3.271 million viewers. ABC's two Great Christmas Light Fight airings tied for the #1 spot in the 18-49 demographic, with ABC's Santa Clause Is Comin' To Town special, with a 0.5 rating.
