Jericho: “Here’s a lesson about television ratings kids”
Chris Jericho knows that a ratings “war” is good for business, and he’s adding his best efforts to explain this week’s AEW vs. NXT ratings. Jericho posted to Twitter after the ratings for Fyter Fest and the Great American Bash night one came out, noting that AEW won in the demo rating and pointing out that “To tv networks & advertisers it’s the ONLY number that matters.”
Jericho isn’t wrong in this; the demo rating is the metric that networks and advertisers look at when determining how well a show is doing as it is the number that ultimately averages out to determine the metic by which ad rates are set. AEW had a 0.29 demo rating, while NXT had a 0.22 demo rating this week.
Here’s a lesson about television ratings kids. Last night @AEWrestling was NUMBER 6 in the 18-49 demo. To tv networks & advertisers it’s the ONLY number that matters and we were up 31% in that area! So once again #AEWDynamite is the REAL winner in the Wed night ratings war! pic.twitter.com/JzZU5X779t
