The show ranked seventh among cable originals with viewership increasing by eight percent and the 18-49 audience up 15 percent from last week’s program.
It was the show’s largest audience since June 7th and the highest 18-49 number since June 21st.
NXT 2.0 used a similar tactic to Raw as the first thirty minutes of the show aired commercial-free and included the four-way match to determine the new NXT women’s tag champions.
This week’s episode topped last Friday’s edition of AEW Rampage in all the key demos except females 12-34, which they tied AEW with.
The number comes one night after the most-watched episode of Raw since March 2020 amid the recent creative changes and Paul Levesque overseeing that department while replacing Vince McMahon.
In the 18-49 demo, females were up by 28 percent and males increased by 22 percent.
Adults 35-49 were up by 36 percent and adults 50+ grew six percent this week.
The younger audience did not see the same results with adults 18-34 dropping 25 percent from last week and its lowest in that category since July 5th.
In the 12-34 demo, males were equal with last week while females fell 32 percent in that category.
In Canada, the show averaged approximately 47,000 viewers and 18,000 in the 25-54 demographic on Sportsnet 360. The viewership was up 24 percent from last week and the demo recovered after hitting a stunningly low figure of 4,000 last week.
