Although the Democratic Debate drew nearly 20 million viewers last night and outdrew the viewership for the 2020 Grammys and 2020 Golden Globes, it didn’t stop AEW and NXT from drawing more viewers than last week.
AEW drew 893,000, up from 817,000 last week. NXT drew 794,000, up from 757,000 last week. AEW drew a 0.65 rating from 0.62 last week, in line with the 0.65 rating for 2020 leading into this week.
NXT drew a 0.59 cable rating, up from 0.57 last week, right in line with the 0.59 average leading into this week (excluding the Jan. 1 “Awards” show).
AEW outdrew NXT by 99,000 viewers in live and same-night-DVR viewership, below the 150,000 average of the prior six weeks.
