Originally published at AEW Dynamite ranks #11 on cable against multiple sports, draws big number in Canada
AEW Dynamite fell outside of the top ten cable programs on Wednesday due to added sports competition.
The March 15th episode from Winnipeg averaged 852,000 viewers and approximately 352,000 (0.27) in the 18-49 demographic, per Wrestlenomics and Showbuzz Daily.
The show ranked #11 among cable originals with Dynamite airing against Vamperpump Rules, back-to-back college basketball games on TruTV, the World Baseball Classic on FS 1, and an NBA game between Philadelphia and Cleveland on ESPN.
Dynamite’s audience fell one percent in viewership and was down by seven percent in the 18-49 demographic. In the key demo, female viewership grew by six percent while males dropped by 9.5 percent.
Two weeks ago, Dynamite did the exact same audience in the 18-49 demo and was ranked third among cable originals that night.
There was a decline of 19 percent among adults 18-34 while adults 35-49 were up by one percent and adults 50+ increased by three percent.
The big number came in Canada where the show from Winnipeg averaged 197,200 viewers and 127,200 in the 25-54 demographic on TSN 2. It was the highest audience for Dynamite in Canada in our data (which is not complete for every week, but this beat every number Dynamite averaged in 2022). The show was up 174 percent in viewers from the week prior and follows massive numbers for Raw and SmackDown over the past week in Canada.
Dynamite ranked fourth among sports programs on Wednesday and was third in the demo.
The show was highlighted by Winnipeg’s Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho involved in the triple threat match for the AEW Trios Championship with the House of Black, The Elite, and J.A.S.
