For total viewers, it was AEW’s third-lowest to date trailing the October 30th and November 27th (Thanksgiving Eve) editions of Dynamite.

In the key demos, AEW was down 27% among females 18-49, down 20% with males 12-34, and 18% among females 12-34.

The larger drops were experienced by NXT falling 33% with both females 18-49 and 12-34 while people 18-34 dropped 30% – the latter being a demo they edged over AEW last week by 0.01.

Between both shows, the only demo that didn’t fall was NXT’s over 50 audience that was identical to last week with a 0.38.
