Where Lucha seemed to be most affected by NXT was the first airing only drew 85,000 viewers, compared to 111,000 viewers last week. It was the smallest 8:00 p.m. audience this year.
The replay then drew 61,000 viewers, compared to 40,000 replay viewers last week.
– DEMOGRAPHICS: Lucha’s median age viewer was 44.1 years-old, tied for the youngest audience this year.

Lucha’s female audience improved, though, reaching a two-month high.
The resulting split was 69 percent males 18-49 and 31 percent females 18-49, the broadest split in the Second Quarter.
