TBS 'Really Happy' With Ratings From Airing Of CM Punk-Jack Perry AEW All In Altercation

TBS happy with airing of CM Punk-Jack Perry footage from AEW All In

All Elite Wrestling controversially aired the CCTV footage of the backstage altercation between CM Punk and Jack Perry at All In on the April 10 episode of AEW Dynamite, with many considering the broadcasting of the incident to be an own goal for the promotion. 

Tony Khan stated following Dynamite that airing the Perry-Punk altercation "made a lot of sense" and the AEW President has since revealed during the pre-Dynasty media call that AEW Dynamite's TV partner TBS were very happy with the ratings the segment generated. 

"After the ratings came in, it felt like, when TBS called me and told me 'good job.' You have to remember, I'm responsible for everybody's job in the company. It is really important for us to please the network and TBS was really happy with that show and that performance. That is the most important. Our fan feedback on the show, the rating is the number one source of fan feedback in the end, the network, and they were incredibly pleased. It was 400,000 viewers in the 18 to 49 demographic, and that was a strong performance. That is how TBS judges the show. How TBS judges the show is the most important metric I have for the performance. I do think what we did last week added a lot of intrigue to this match and I'm very excited for the Dynasty pay-per-view and I'm very happy about how we got here," Khan said.

The April 10 episode of AEW Dynamite averaged 819,000 viewers and a 0.30 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. The quarter hour with the Perry-Punk footage averaged 880,000 viewers and a 0.34 rating, according to Wrestlenomics

Tony Khan also addressed CM Punk's claim that he had to cover his own medical bills following his torn triceps at All Out 2022.
