We have a breakdown of the major wrestling programs airing in Canada over the past week.
The Canadian viewership figures are reported exclusively at POST Wrestling on a weekly basis and included in all of our stories covering the U.S. viewership figures.
Below are the performances of the major shows airing in the country with WWE Raw, NXT & Friday Night SmackDown on Sportsnet 360, and AEW Dynamite on TSN 2.
AEW Rampage only streams on TSN Direct and therefore, we do not receive viewership figures for the program.
One other note is that unlike in the U.S., in Canada the main demographic that is measured is adults 25-54, and is why that is the demo figure included.
Friday Night SmackDown – Friday, September 16th
25-54 demographic: 80,000
Four-week average: 149,000 and 67,500 in the demo
WWE Raw – Monday, September 19th
Viewers: 182,000 (#3 among sports programming for the night behind both NFL games)
25-54 demographic: 72,000
Four-week average: 231,000 viewers and 114,000 in the demo
NXT – Tuesday, September 20th (Taped episode)
25-54 demographic: 23,000
Three-week average: 58,000 and 28,000 in the demo (four weeks ago, the show finished outside the top ten sports programs and we didn’t have specific figures for the show and therefore, used a three-week average)
AEW Dynamite – Wednesday, September 21st
25-54 demographic: 55,000
Four-week average: 89,000 and 51,000 in the demo
