• NXT Draws Impressive Viewership For Its Debut On The USA Network (Details)
This week’s episode of NXT, which was its debut episode on the USA Network, drew 1.18 million viewers. NXT ranked #4 for the night in the Cable Top 150 ’18-49′ demographic.
This is a very impressive number given the fact that NXT drew around 800,000 viewers when it aired on the USA Network for a special episode a couple of years back.
In comparison, this week’s RAW drew 2.27 million viewers (up from previous week’s 2.13 million viewers) and this week’s SmackDown drew 2.064 million viewers (up from previous week’s 2.061 million viewers).
If you want to compare this to All Elite Wrestling, then AEW’s first ever show on TNT, “Countdown to All Out” special, drew 390,000 viewers.
