AEW Collision took a hit airing on the same day as WWE Crown Jewel as it registered one of its lowest audiences.

The November 4 episode from Wichita averaged 366,000 viewers and 116,000 (0.09) in the 18-49 demographic, per Wrestlenomics.

Nielsen data is delayed and it’s unknown what the audience levels were for the various college football games on Saturday night.

The show aired several hours after WWE Crown Jewel and was the second time a Collision number was hurt when airing on the same day of an afternoon card by WWE after Money in the Bank on July 1.

Collision dropped 22.5% in viewership while decreasing 34% in the 18-49 demographic from last week’s episode.

This was Collision’s lowest viewership and demo audience in its regular time slot since September 30.

In the key demo, male viewership fell from 124,000 to 76,000 or 39% while females dropped from 51,000 to 39,000 or 24%.

Adults 18-34 nearly fell in half with a 47% decrease from the previous week with 34,000 in the demo. Females in this category saw a massive drop from 22,000 to 8,000 with a 64% fall.

This was the lowest 18-34 audience in the history of Collision.

Adults 35-54 were down by 26% to 82,000, although women in the demo grew by 11% for the lone increase from last week among the major demos.

Collision was promoted around an eight-man tag in the main event with Ricky Starks, Big Bill & Gates of Agony against FTR, Rush & Preston Vance. The one-minute overrun was the high point of the show with 410,000 viewers and 182,000 in the demo, according to Wrestlenomics.
