Wednesday’s cable ratings are in with AEW edging out NXT in overall viewers as well the coveted 18-49 demographic.

With total viewers, it was the closest race to date with AEW averaging 851,000 viewers on TNT and NXT attracting 845,000 on the USA Network. AEW was up 28% while NXT grew 4% from last week’s episodes on the eve of U.S. Thanksgiving.

Among the key demos, every category was up for each show except NXT’s over 50 audience, which fell 5% while AEW grew 24% in that category.

NXT won three demos in total. Aside from adults over 50, which they dominate in, they won with people 18-34 and females 12-34 edging past AEW by 0.01 in both.

In the 18-49 demo, AEW did a 0.32 that was up 23% from last week but still down 18% from the November 20th episode. NXT did a 0.29 in the demo, up 21% from last week and down 3% from November 20th.
