• Tony Khan On What Is AEW’s Bread & Butter
During a recent interview with The Wrap, AEW President Tony Khan once again talked about how important the 18-49 demo ratings are for AEW’s TV shows: Dynamite & Rampage.
Here’s what Khan said:
“The (18-49) demo is the number that we are measured by, and that’s the chart that we receive from our partners at TNT.
I have a meeting with TNT executives every week and we go through the ratings. We used to just go through the ratings for Dynamite, but now we also go through the ratings for Rampage and look at patterns.
The main thing we tend to look at is 18-49. We’ll look at different splits, by gender and different demographics, but absolutely the 18-49 overall is the bread and butter number that we always look at at the start of the meeting.”
