AEW Rampage experienced a small viewership drop this past Friday while its demo audience was the largest in three weeks.

The January 27th episode on TNT averaged 458,000 viewers and approximately 187,000 (0.14) in the 18-49 demographic, per Wrestlenomics and Showbuzz Daily.

The episode ranked #22 among cable originals, which was topped by new coverage occupying four of the top five spots alongside RuPaul’s Drag Race on MTV. In its timeslot, Rampage was sixth behind Love After Lockup, On Patrol Live, Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors on NBA TV, and two cable news programs.

Rampage was only down 1 percent in viewership with the 18-49 audience increasing by 11 percent this week.

The increases were all due to the female viewership after a poor showing last week and returning to normal levels this week. In the 18-49 demo, females grew by 57 percent from last week while males dropped by 4 percent.

The 18-34 demographic grew by 32 percent with males only increasing by 3 percent, but the female audience doubled from last week. It was the largest female number in this demo since 12/23.

Adults 35-49 were up by 1 percent, again, women gained 27 percent from last week while males in this demo fell by 9 percent.

Rampage was headlined by a title eliminator match between Jamie Hayter and Emi Sakura and was Sakura’s first match on either TNT or TBS since 2019. The show opened with Hangman Page defeating Wheeler Yuta.
