NXT’s viewership remained the same for its second straight week airing on Syfy for the August 3rd episode that was taped two weeks ago.
For the second week in a row, NXT averaged 520,000 viewers on Syfy while dropping in the 18-49 demographic from 0.12 to 0.10 this week, per PW Torch.
In Canada, NXT did one of its better numbers on Tuesday nights with an average of 80,500 viewers and 40,700 in the 25-54 demographic on Sportsnet 360. NXT was going against the Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Guardians game, which was the most-watched sports broadcast of the day followed by coverage of the Olympics.
The show was headlined by the “Love Her or Lose Her” match between Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis ending with Indi Hartwell and Lumis making out in the ring despite Lumis’ loss.
Next week’s episode of NXT returns to the USA Network with two episodes remaining until the TakeOver card on Sunday, August 22nd.
