• Viewership For Last Night’s AEW Dynamite With CM Punk’s 2nd AEW Appearance
AEW’s newest signing, CM Punk, made his Dynamite debut on last night’s episode.
Last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite drew 1.17 million viewers, with a 0.48 rating in the 18-49 demo (which means 620,000 viewers were between the age of 18 and 49).
This is up from last week’s 975,000 viewers, with a 0.35 rating in the 18-49 demo.
It should be noted that last night’s 1.17 million number is the ‘overnight viewership’, which means the final viewership might be a little less.
Last week’s episode of AEW Rampage, featuring CM Punk’s debut, drew an overnight viewership of 1.16 million, but the final/official viewership number was 1.13 million.
