Wednesday’s live Fyter Fest Night 1 edition of AEW Dynamite reportedly drew 1.025 million viewers on TNT, according to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.

This is up 17.68% from last week’s Road Rager edition of Dynamite, which drew 871,000 viewers for AEW’s return to the road.

Dynamite drew a 0.40 rating in the key 18-49 demographic this week. This is up 21.21% from last week’s 0.33 rating.

The 0.40 key demographic rating represents around 518,000 viewers who watched the show from that 18-49 demo. This is up 22.75% from last week’s 422,000 18-49 viewers that the 0.33 key demo rating represented.

Fyter Fest Night 1 drew the most viewers and the best key demo rating for AEW since the May 5 Blood & Guts Dynamite show. This was the third-best viewership and third-best key demo rating of the year. The second hour went up against the NBA Finals on ABC. The first hour of that game drew an overnight viewership of 7.057 million viewers, according to SpoilerTV. Last week’s Road Rager show only went up against competition from the NHL Stanley Cup finals, which drew 3 million overnight viewers. The Fyter Fest Night 1 viewership was up 17.68% from last week, while the 18-49 key demo rating was up 21.21% from last week.

Last night’s Dynamite viewership was up 30.08% from the same week in 2020 for the Fight for the Fallen episode, which went head-to-head against WWE NXT in the Wednesday night timeslot. The key demo was up 37.93% from the same week last year.

AEW’s Fyter Fest Night 1 special from the H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, TX featured several matches and segments advertised ahead of time – Wheeler Yuta vs. Sammy Guevara, Matt Hardy vs. Christian Cage, Penelope Ford vs. Yuka Sakazaki, Ricky Starks winning the FTW Title from Brian Cage, Jon Moxley retaining NJPW’s IWGP United States Title over Karl Anderson, plus Darby Allin defeating Ethan Page in the Coffin Match main event.
