AEW Dynamite & WWE NXT Quarter Ratings Breakdown (1/27/21)

Author:

AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT viewership came out yesterday and it was very much a surprise to many at how close the total viewership was. It's worth noting that AEW still finished 18 places ahead of NXT in the key demo numbers. Neither show did well in the second half of the shows with both shows posting their best numbers in hour one. Meaning people tuned out for both huge main event tag matches on each show. Below I will breakdown each quarter with the numbers in the key demo and total viewership:

Quarter 7

(AEW Dynamite) End of Baker/Shanna, MJF/Sammy Promo, Bucks/Good Brothers/Omega promo
715,000 viewers and 358,000 in the key demo.

(WWE NXT) End of Reed vs. Scott and Thatcher/Ciampa Promo

Quarter 8

(AEW Dynamite) Bucks/Good Brothers vs. Dark Order + Fallout

(WWE NXT) Balor/O'Reilly vs. Lorcan/Burch + Fallout
629,000 viewers and 222,000 in the key demo.

The main event segments for both shows were the lowest viewed segments of the night. This is pretty shocking as AEW has put lots of effort and time over multiple promotions into this angle. Also with NXT this Balor and Undisputed Era angle has been a large part of their shows for the last month.
