NXT 2.0 saw another increase this week as the show posted its best figures in two months as Stand & Deliver draws closer.

The March 22nd edition of the show averaged 628,000 viewers and approximately 184,000 (0.14) in the 18-49 demographic with data from Brandon Thurston at Wrestlenomics and Showbuzz Daily.

It was the show’s highest overall viewership since January 11th and their best 18-49 audience since January 25th, which averaged the same amount as this week’s episode.

NXT finished #26 among cable originals.  The cable chart was led by Curse of Oak Island on History (2,683,000 viewers and 0.35 in 18-49), which went against the second hour of NXT. They also faced competition from the New York Knicks vs. Atlanta Hawks (1,008,000 and 0.32, #2) and Real Housewives of New Jersey (996,000 and 0.27, #4).

The show was bolstered by its growth among its 18-34 audience, which increased 34 percent this week and was the demo’s highest rating since January 25th. The growth was completely due to male viewership in the demo going from 19,000 last week to 39,000 while women in the demo dropped from 28,000 to 24,000, per Brandon Thurston.

It was a similar pattern in the 18-49 demo where males improved by nine percent while women dropped by eight percent.

NXT 2.0 included the finals of the women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and a match involving Raw star Robert Roode and Bron Breakker.

In Canada, NXT 2.0 averaged 73,000 viewers on Sportsnet 360 and was up from last week’s average of 65,000. It did not finish among the top ten sports programs on Tuesday.
