Last Wednesday’s live Thanksgiving Eve edition of AEW Dynamite drew 898,000 viewers on TNT, according to Showbuzz Daily.

This is down 8.73% from the previous week’s post-Full Gear episode, which drew 984,000 viewers. The numbers are just now being released due to the Thanksgiving holiday delay.

Dynamite drew a 0.31 rating in the key 18-49 demographic this past week. This is down 16.21% from the previous week’s 0.37 rating. The 0.31 key demographic rating represents 408,000 viewers who watched the show from that 18-49 demo. This is down 15% from the previous week’s 480,000 18-49 viewers that the 0.33 key demo rating represented, according to Wrestlenomics.

Dynamite ranked #6 on the Cable Top 150 this past week with the 0.31 rating in the 18-49 key demographic. This is down from the previous week’s #3 ranking.

Dynamite ranked #42 in viewership for the night on cable this past week. This is down from the previous week’s #33 ranking.

Last week’s Thanksgiving Eve edition of Dynamite drew the lowest key demo rating and the second-lowest audience for a Wednesday night episode since July 7, but that is somewhat expected as the show aired the night before a holiday. The 2020 pre-Thanksgiving episode was down 16.5% in total viewers from the week before, and down 30% in the key demo rating from the week before. Dynamite still has not cracked 1 million viewers since the show started airing live on the West Coast on October 27. Last Wednesday’s viewership was down 8.73% from the previous week, while the 18-49 key demo rating was down 16.21% from the previous week.

Last Wednesday’s Dynamite viewership was up 26.48% from the same week in 2020. The key demo rating was up 19.23% from the previous year. The 2020 episode went head-to-head with WWE NXT, also on Thanksgiving Eve.

The NBA game between the Warriors and the 76ers on ESPN topped the night in the 18-49 demographic on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.68 rating, drawing 2.100 million viewers. The Five on FOX News topped the night in viewership on cable with 3.250 million viewers, ranking #9 on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.26 key demo rating.

Survivor on CBS topped the night on network TV in viewership with an average of 5.544 million viewers. Survivor also took the #1 spot in the 18-49 demographic with a 0.99.

Last Wednesday’s Thanksgiving Eve edition of Dynamite aired live from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, and featured several matches and segments advertised ahead of time – CM Punk vs. QT Marshall, Bryan Danielson vs. Colt Cabana, Thunder Rosa vs. Jamie Hayter in a quarterfinals match for the TBS Title Tournament, a “Friendsgiving” segment with Tony Schiavone and AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker, plus the main event, which was Cody Rhodes, PAC and AEW World Tag Team Champions The Lucha Brothers vs. Andrade El Idolo, Malakai Black and AAA World Tag Team Champions FTR.
