RAW is looking to get back on its feet, AEW is preparing for Full Gear against the NBA and Smackdown continues to climb.
RAW Ratings (07th October) :
Ratings : 1 593 000 (+6,13 %) & 0.43 sur les 18-49 [+0.07]
Ratings per hour :
H1 : [P2+ : 1 723 000] [18-49 : 0.45] [Cable Pos : 7]
H2 : [P2+ : 1 646 000] [18-49 : 0.46] [Cable Pos : 6]
H3 : [P2+ : 1 411 000] [18-49 : 0.37] [Cable Pos : 9]
This week's episode goes back up in the numbers after the previous week's show which had sunk notably because of Halloween. Nevertheless, these figures are not excellent for all that. Indeed, we find ourselves in a low average while RAW had accustomed us to better take the NFL this year. Especially since the NFL game of the night recorded the "worst" audience of the year (so far) with a score of 9,356,000 and 2.75 in the 18-49 demographic, broadcast on ESPN.
A small warning signal for this show, which should certainly have done better, with an episode that will however have made a lot of talk and the feedback was not always positive. We'll have to bounce back next week.
Ratings NXT (08th November) :
Ratings : 664 000 (-0,90 %) & 0.15 sur les 18-49 [+0.02]
Cable Pos : 40th.
If RAW's numbers are not good despite the increase in audience, it is quite the opposite for NXT which records a solid score with an increase of 0.02 on the 18-49 demo. These figures are even better when you know the context of the evening. Indeed, it was the Mid Terms 2022 in the United States, politics was omnipresent on cable (and Nationals) that night, hence the 40th place for NXT.
A positive signal for the show, which is holding its own and may seem a bit more impervious to competition than it once was. It must be confirmed next week.
Ratings AEW Dynamite (09th November) :
Ratings : 930 000 (+2,09 %) & 0.32 sur les 18-49 [+0.03]
Cable Pos : 5th.
Peak audience (18-49) → Q1: 1,078,000 (and about 0.37 on 18-49)
FTR & The Acclaimed vs Swerve In Our Glory & The Gunns
Many thanks to Brandon Thurston for this quarterly data.
Full Gear is approaching the interest seems to be gradually, the show passes the 0.30 mark again and gets closer to the million viewers again. These figures are rather good, with once again the presence of the NBA in direct competition on TNT (1,233,000 & 0.43) but also the CMA Awards which recorded an audience of 7,574,000 & 1.05 in the 18-49 demographic on ABC.
It should also be noted that a trend seems to be slowly emerging in the demographics with the 18-49 demographic slightly down over time while, on the contrary, the 50+ demographic is slowly but surely gaining share.
Ratings Smackdown (11th November) :
Ratings : 2 264 000 (+5,89 %) & 0.58 sur les 18-49 [+0.10]
Smackdown regained its audience and recorded a very solid 0.58 in the 18-49 demographic, the best score since the September 23 show. The blue show has been recording a positive dynamic for some time (apart from the episode on FS1) even if the presence of Roman Reigns is a major asset for the ratings especially since there was no strong competition that night.
Smackdown, which had a harder time taking off than RAW after the arrival of Triple H as creative director, is finally starting to accumulate good scores over time. Have they found a recipe that works?
Ratings AEW Rampage (11th November) :
Ratings : 456 000 (+0,22 %) & 0.11 sur les 18-49 [-0.03]
Cable Pos : 55th.
The increased audience for this episode should not be used to hide the drop in the 18-49 demographic with a loss of 0.03 (even though last week's episode was live. Such a low demographic has not happened since August. Rampage is yo-yoing once again, this may raise some questions even if, once again, the most important thing is Dynamite. It's a pity when you know that they are able to put out good assets to attract an audience on Rampage.
The show was facing an NBA game on ESPN that drew 913,000 viewers in a 0.33 in the 18-49 demographic.
