AEW Dynamite saw a minor increase in viewership as it heads into its Full Gear pay-per-view this Saturday.

The November 15 edition of Dynamite from Ontario, California, averaged 823,000 viewers and 368,000 (0.28) in the 18-49 on TBS – an increase of 2% and 4% respectively, per Wrestlenomics.

In the 18-49 demo, female viewership for Dynamite grew from 99,000 to 126,000 while men saw a small drop from 254,000 to 241,000 for the week.

Adults 18-34 fell by 11%, which was hurt by a drop among males in the demo from 100,000 to 76,000, negating the 23% growth among women.

Adults 35-49 increased from 213,000 to 246,000 or 16% from last week.

After being close in multiple categories last week with NXT, AEW won all by one key demo this week. After a difference of 6,000 viewers in the 18-49 demo last week, AEW had a commanding lead over NXT in that demo with 368,000 to 272,000.

The two programs were close in the 18-34 demo with AEW averaging 125,000 to 122,000 for NXT. In the demo, AEW won with males 76,000 to 70,000 while NXT was ahead with women at 52,000 to 48,000.

In Canada, Dynamite had a strong rebound after last week’s disappointing number. This week the show averaged 102,200 viewers and 48,000 in the 25-54 demographic on TSN 2, which were up 52% in viewers and 45% in the demo from last week. It was Dynamite’s largest audience in Canada since the Super Tuesday episode last month.

The show ranked #8 in Canada among sports programs for the night while against the Edmonton Oilers vs. Seattle Kraken and an NBA preseason game between Toronto and Milwaukee.
