AEW Dynamite Beats WWE Raw In Crucial 18-49 Demo
A huge ratings victory for AEW
This week's episode of AEW Dynamite reportedly drew a higher rating in the 18-49 demo than WWE Raw.
According to numbers provided by Wrestlenomics and Showbuzz Daily, the All Out fallout episode of AEW Dynamite on Wednesday averaged 1.319 million viewers on TNT, which is up 26 percent from the previous week. This would make the September 8 Dynamite the second-highest audience in the history of the show, second only to the series premiere in October 2019.
In the 18-49 demo, Dynamite drew a 0.52 rating, which is a huge increase of 40.5 percent from last week. Notably, the AEW Wednesday night show beat WWE Monday Night Raw in the crucial demo. The report suggests that Dynamite averaged 681,000 viewers in the category, topping Raw's 678,000.
This week's AEW Dynamite was also up 40.5 percent year-over-year in the 18-49 demo.
As compared to the same week last year, when Dynamite also ran unopposed on a Wednesday night, the show was up 29.8 percent in overall viewers.
It should be noted that this week's WWE Raw drew an overnight viewership of 1.85 million, still higher than AEW Dynamite's number, but the 18-49 demo ratings is one of the most coveted in television, due to the number being an important statistic for advertisers.
