AEW Dynamite Viewership Drops on 6/8, Takes No. 1 on Cable for Wednesday

AEW Dynamite viewership is down on June 8.

According Daily Showbuzz, 939,000 viewers watched the show on Wednesday night, and it drew a 0.34 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Viewership was down from the June 1 episode, when 969,000 viewers tuned in. The demo rose from last week’s episode which also drew a 0.40 rating in the same demographic.

Even with the dwindling viewership and demo, AEW Dynamite took the number one demographic spot among cable originals last night. The declining numbers are likely due to ABC’s NBA Finals coverage, which drew massive audiences and a demo, according to Showbuzz Daily.

This week’s show launched a Casino Battle Royale to determine who would earn the right to challenge Jon Moxley in the show’s main event. The main event saw Blackpool Combat Club’s Jon Moxley defeat Casino Battle Royale winner Kyle O’Reilly of The Undisputed Elite. Moxley is now moving on to Forbidden Door to compete for the interim AEW World Championship.
