Though down from the previous week, this week's AEW Dynamite ratings give a truer gauge on TBS.

This week's episode of AEW Dynamite was watched by an average of 969,000 viewers across its two hours, including 505,000 in the key P18-49 demographic to hit a rating of 0.39 (as originally reported by Wrestlenomics' Brandon Thurston).

Dynamite finished third on the night amongst original cable telecasts, outdone only by a couple of live NBA games on ESPN.

As far as the quarter-hours go, Dynamite's peak viewership was 1.169 million viewers (including 588,000) in Q1 - a likely product of the show's stronger lead-in on TBS compared to TNT.


Overall viewership was down from the previous week's 1.010 million viewers. P18-49, meanwhile, declined from 558,000 viewers and a 0.43 rating. Nonetheless, this week's figures are likely a truer gauge of how Dynamite will fare on TBS, as the previous show was likely boosted by being the first episode on a new network - as well as its bumper card featuring multiple title matches.

WWE Raw also drew a 0.39 P18-49 rating from 507,000 viewers on Monday night. Raw was down on the previous week, however, having faced intense competition from a college football game that drew 22.2 million viewers on ESPN.
