In its second week running unopposed on Tuesday nights, NXT experienced another increase with viewership and the main demographic.

NXT finished 27th on Tuesday’s cable charts with a 0.23 in the 18-49 demographic with 840,000 viewers on the USA Network. Those were improvements from last week’s figures of 0.22 in the key demo and 805,000 viewers for the episode following TakeOver: Stand & Deliver and WrestleMania 37.

The increase occurs despite heavy news coverage on Tuesday with reaction to the guilty charge against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd last year.

Of the key demos monitored by Showbuzz Daily, all were either even or showed increases compared with last week’s ratings. The largest gain was among females 12-34 that increased by 12.5 percent.

In Canada, the show once again failed to crack the top ten sports broadcasts on Tuesday meaning it fell below 81,400 viewers.

Here is a breakdown of the key demos:
