Originally published at AEW Dynamite #3 on cable behind the NBA, increase from week prior

The go-home edition of AEW Dynamite before this weekend’s pay-per-view saw the program finish third on cable behind the NBA.

The November 10th episode from Indianapolis averaged 913,000 viewers with 450,000 (0.35) in the 18-49 demographic with data from Showbuzz Daily and Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.

The number was improved from last week, which was its lowest Wednesday night performance since July 7th.

This week’s show grew 4 percent overall viewers and was up 6 percent in the 18-49 demo. This was the third straight week where Dynamite has been airing live across the U.S. and being affected by an earlier start time in the Pacific time zone and portions of those in the Mountain time zone.

The show finished third among cable originals and was only topped by ESPN’s NBA coverage with the Detroit Pistons vs. Houston Rockets airing head-to-head and finishing second with 977,000 viewers and inching out AEW with 0.35 (we don’t have the exact number of viewers). The cable numbers were led by the late game between Miami and the L.A. Lakers that averaged 1,609,000 and 0.61.

According to Brandon Thurston, Dynamite slightly edged out Raw in Males 18-49 with 102,000 to 100,000. Raw topped Dynamite in the rest of the key demos this week.

Dynamite saw an uptick in Females 18-49 by 21 percent from last week with Males 12-34 growing by the same percentage. Adults 18-34 dropped by 10 percent and Males 18-49 dropped by 2 percent.

In Canada, Dynamite fell 13 percent with 79,800 viewers on TSN 2.
