Wednesday’s new edition of AEW Dynamite reportedly drew 883,000 viewers on TNT, according to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.

This is up 36% from last week’s Saturday Night Dynamite episode, which drew 649,000 viewers this past Saturday night.

The Dynamite show on Wednesday night drew a 0.35 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. This is up 66.7% from the previous week’s 0.21 rating on Saturday night.

The 0.35 key demographic rating represents around 452,000 viewers who watched the show from that 18-49 demo.

Dynamite featured several happenings advertised ahead of time, including MJF vs. Sammy Guevara in the main event, TNT Champion Miro defending against Brian Pillman Jr., Chris Jericho’s return to commentary, AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks vs. Eddie Kingston and Penta El Zero Miedo, and more.

Dynamite on Wednesday marked AEW’s return to their normal timeslot after airing on the weekends for several weeks due to the NBA Playoffs. Last night’s show faced significant competition from the NBA and the NHL, but still drew AEW’s best Dynamite audience since the May 19 episode, and the best 18-49 key demographic rating since the Blood & Guts special episode on May 5. Wednesday’s total viewership was up 36% from last week, while the key demo rating was up 66.7% from last week.

Wednesday’s Dynamite viewership was up 18% from the same week in 2020, which went head-to-head against WWE NXT in the Wednesday night timeslot. The key demo was up 20.7% from the same week last year.
