In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has posted a breakdown of the ratings for the latest episodes of AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT. In turn, the breakdown is divided into the total audience and demographic of interest of 18-49 years, a very important piece of information since it is the profile most sought after by advertisers.
That the range between 18 and 49 years is so important is because it is in the middle between people old enough to spend money on their own, but not so old as to be reluctant to try new products.
This week, AEW increased its overall viewership by 10% to 762,000 viewers, making it one of the 31 most-watched shows of the day. For its part, the audience of WWE NXT suffered a decrease of 14.04% with 551,000 viewers and ranked 70.
