AEW went into All Out weekend with the fourth edition of Rampage taking place from the NOW Arena and finishing fourth all cable programming on Friday.

The September 3rd edition of the show that featured Darby Allin facing Daniel Garcia with CM Punk on commentary, averaged 696,000 viewers and 397,000 (0.30) in the 18-49 demographic, per Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics and Showbuzz Daily.

Friday’s episode was live as opposed to the previous week’s Rampage, which was taped two days prior. The September 3rd edition saw a drop of 8.5 percent in the 18-49 demographic and 4 percent in overall viewers.

Rampage experienced its largest increase among men 12-34 that grew 77 percent from 0.09 to 0.16 this week while adults 18-34 were up by 36 percent. The largest decline was seen among men 18-49 that fell by 14.5 percent and adults 25-54 dropping by 13 percent.

The show finished fourth among all cable programming behind the College Football games and coverage on ESPN.

Friday’s episode was the lowest of the four episodes of Rampage in overall viewers but did beat out the August 13th premiere in 18-49 by 1,000 viewers.

After four episodes, Rampage is averaging 822,000 viewers and 480,000 in 18-49. However, if you take out the anomaly of “The First Dance”, which skews the averages, the figures would be 720,000 viewers and 409,000 in 18-49 (these figures do not include DVR viewership and are from the data reported by Brandon Thurston and Showbuzz Daily).

The Countdown to All Out special that aired on TNT immediately after Rampage averaged 361,000 viewers and 230,000 (0.18) in the 18-49 demo, finishing 9th on cable for the night.
