AEW Rampage Rating Up For 17 September Episode

Rampage finished second on the night amongst cable originals despite a drop in viewership.

Lucha Brothers The Blade

AEW Rampage continues to post strong television ratings despite its difficult Friday 10 PM ET timeslot, with last week's show finishing amongst the night's top four cable originals for the sixth consecutive week.

Rampage posted a ratings increase in the key 18-49 demographic, moving from 10 September's 0.27 to 0.28. This was enough for the show to finish second in the evening's cable rankings, with only a college football game on ESPN outdoing a show built around Tag Team Champions The Lucha Brothers vs. The Butcher and The Blade and TNT Champion Miro vs. Fuego Del Sol.

Overall viewership finished at 642,000, down from the previous week's 670,000.


Rampage was once again the top-performing cable show in the 10 PM timeslot, as it has been since launching, with the next best telecast (WETV's Love After Lockup) pulling a 0.20 P18-49 rating.

Launched on 13 August, Rampage has finished within Friday's top four cable shows every single week, including a table-topping night with a 0.34 rating on 27 August. The show has thus far been a ratings success for AEW and TNT, with the high point being CM Punk's debut on 20 August (a 0.53 P18-49 rating).
