AEW Rampage ratings and key demographics for debut of C.M. Punk, tops Raw in key demos

By Wade Keller, PWTorch editor


Friday night’s (8/20) episode of AEW Rampage on TNT featuring the highly-anticipated debut of C.M. Punk drew 1.129 million viewers. That, by a small margin, in the fourth most watched episode of an AEW program on TNT. Last week’s Dynamite drew 975,000 viewers, so this episode averaged 154,000 more viewers.

We will have details later in the week on what the peak minute viewership was, but certainly Punk’s appearance peaked higher than the average over the course of the whole hour.

In the key 18-49 demographic, Rampage drew a 0.53 rating, up from last week’s 0.31. That nearly matches Raw’s rating from last week in that demo of 0.55 and is more than three of the last four Raw episodes and 10 of the last 12 Raw episodes.

In the male 18-49 demo, Rampage drew a 0.72 rating, above the prior week’s Rampage demo rating of 0.42 and more than last week’s Dynamite rating of 0.50. It also topped last week’s Raw rating in that demo of 0.70.

In the younger 18-34 male demo, it drew a 0.42 rating, up from the 0.25 rating the prior week and above last week’s Dynamite rating of 0.29. It also topped Raw’s rating in that demo of 0.40.

  1. “[Rampage] also topped last week’s Raw rating in that demo …” – yeah, but Raw whooped Rampage’s ass in the old folk (50+) demo, so there’s that.

  2. I’m well into the old folk demo, but RAW is pretty much fast forward TV except for Sheamus. I am a big fan of CM Punk

  3. Raw is almost unwatchable. The Miz and Morrison segments (and I know Miz turned, so hopefully those are gone) ARE unwatchable. It’s saying something that even Alexa Bliss makes me want to change the channel. The only things redeemable about Raw these days, to me, are the continued good work by Charlotte Flair, Bobby Lashley and MVP, Drew McIntyre, and I will admit the RK-Bro thing has been interesting. New Day=channel turning. Miz/Morrison=channel turning. Ditto for “Elias,” or whatever is next for him, Baszler and Jax, the Eva Marie debacle, just about everything.
