AEW Rampage fell to the lowest overall viewership in the show's four-month history for the special Black Friday episode on 26 November.

Last week's numbers were reported late as a result of the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. Nonetheless, Wrestlenomics' Brandon Thurston was first to report that Rampage was watched by a total of 431,000 P2+ viewers, including 238,000 in the key 18-49 demographic.

While the overall viewership is the lowest in the brand's history (outdoing the previous record of 502,000 on 8 October), the 18-49 number is only the second lowest. 8 October's 225,000 remains the worst number in that category.


Rampage's 0.18 P18-49 rating meant it finished 17th amongst original cable telecasts on the night. College football and basketball (and related broadcasts) dominated the evening, occupying seven top 10 spots, including the entire top four.

AEW's 26 November numbers are down from the previous week, when 556,000 P2+ viewers included 285,000 aged between 18 and 49.


Last week's episode of Rampage featured Eddie Kingston vs. Daniel Garcia, Britt Baker vs. Riho, and Adam Cole and Bobby Fish vs. Orange Cassidy and Wheeler YUTA.
