This is up 1.28% from last week’s episode, which drew 861,000 viewers.

Dynamite drew a 0.33 rating in the key 18-49 demographic this week. This is up 6.45% from last week’s 0.31 rating. The 0.33 key demographic rating represents 430,000 viewers who watched the show from that 18-49 demo. This is up 5.91% from last week’s 406,000 18-49 viewers that the 0.31 key demo rating represented, according to Wrestlenomics.

The AEW Dynamite audience is up this week, but this is the third-lowest audience on a Wednesday night since fans returned. The key demo rating is tied with two other episodes for the second-lowest key demo rating since fans returned, topping the 0.31 key demo rating the show drew for the last two weeks.

This was another rare week, and the second week in a row, where the Dynamite audience and key demo rating were down for the same week last year. Last year’s episode did feature Sting’s first AEW interview, plus a sitdown interview with NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal.

The NBA game on ESPN between the Warriors and the Trail Blazers topped the night in the 18-49 demographic on the Cable Top 150 with a 0.55 rating, drawing 1.636 million viewers.
