AEW Dynamite viewership/rating for this week

Aug 5, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Wednesday’s live Homecoming edition of AEW Dynamite reportedly drew 1.102 million viewers on TNT, according to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.

This is down 0.54% from last week’s Fight for the Fallen edition of Dynamite, which drew 1.108 viewers.

Dynamite drew a 0.46 rating in the key 18-49 demographic this week. This is up 2.22% from last week’s 0.54 rating.

The 0.46 key demographic rating represents around 593,000 viewers who watched the show from that 18-49 demo. This is up 1.89% from last week’s 582,000 18-49 viewers that the 0.45 key demo rating represented.

Homecoming marked the first time that AEW Dynamite has averaged more than 1 million viewers for four weeks in a row. The 0.46 key demo rating is tied with the October 9, 2019 episode for the second-best rating in the demo, behind the original premiere. Dynamite Homecoming viewership was down 0.54% from last week, while the 18-49 key demo rating was up 2.22% from last week.

Last night’s Dynamite Homecoming viewership was up 22.3% from the same week in 2020. The key demo was up 27.8% from the same week last year, which went head-to-head against WWE NXT in the Wednesday night timeslot.

AEW’s Homecoming special from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL featured several matches and segments advertised ahead of time – 2.0 (fka Ever-Rise) debuting with Daniel Garcia vs. Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston and Darby Allin, Christian Cage vs. The Blade, Malakai Black vs. Cody Rhodes, Chris Jericho vs. Juventud Guerrera, a NWA World Women’s Title Eliminator Match with The Bunny vs. Leyla Hirsch, and TNT Champion Miro defending against Lee Johnson.
