Last night’s AEW Dynamite on TNT averaged 700,000 viewers, down 7.5 percent from last week. It’s Dynamite’s second-lowest viewership total since June of last year.

Over on the USA Network, WWE NXT averaged 654,000 viewers, down 3.5 percent from last week.

The bigger news was in the 18-49 demo. Dynamite finished seventh on cable with a 0.26 rating. That’s down 13.3 percent from the previous week and also matched the second-lowest number Dynamite has done since June of last year. NXT, however, was up 50 percent in the 18-49 demo, drawing a 0.21 rating. NXT finished 12th on cable in the demo, which is the highest it’s finished since the debut of Dynamite.

The combined Wednesday night audience was 1.354 million viewers, the lowest since February 10 and down 5.6 percent from last week. The combined 18-49 number, spurred on by NXT’s increase, was up 6.8 percent, totaling a 0.47.

The individual demo numbers were much closer than usual. NXT won with women 18-49, drawing a 0.16 rating to Dynamite’s 0.15. In men 18-49, Dynamite had a big win with a 0.38 rating to NXT’s 0.25. That was Dynamite’s strongest category, with it finishing fourth on cable.
