AEW Collision saw an improvement in its figures from this past Saturday, although remained under 400k viewers.
The November 11 episode from Oakland averaged 396,000 viewers and 140,000 (0.12) in the 18-49 demographic – increases of 8% and 21% respectively from the previous week, per Wrestlenomics.
It was the fifth time the show failed to top 400,000 viewers but the first time there wasn’t a head-to-head or same-day WWE/NXT premium live event airing.
Last week’s show aired on the same day as Crown Jewel. This week’s show aired against college football and the UFC 295 prelims, although we don’t have data for those programs yet.
This week, males 18-49 grew from 76,000 to 105,000 while adults 18-34 saw an improvement of 32% going from 34,000 to 45,000.
Adults 35-49 grew 17% from 82,000 to 96,000 with an increase among male viewers while females dropped.
The two-hour show was headlined by Adam Copeland teaming with Sting & Darby Allin against Lance Archer & The Righteous.
Wrestlenomics reports that the viewership peak occurred during the final quarter for the main event with 412,000 viewers. The peak quarter in the 18-49 demo was the preceding fifteen minutes with 154,000 viewers for the angle involving The Callis Family and Paul Wight, a backstage interview with FTR, and the beginning of the main event.
