This week’s NXT viewership had strong competition from the MLB World Series on network TV, Election Night coverage on cable, and some from the NBA on cable. Game 6 of the World Series drew almost 14 million viewers on FOX.

This week’s viewership was down 15.41% from last week, while the key demo rating was down 16.66% from last week.
