Posted By Caroline Walsh on 07/29/21


PWTorch is reporting that last night’s episode of WWE NXT drew an average overnight viewership of 520,000 viewers. Last night’s show was broadcast on the SyFy Channel due to the Tokyo Olympics airing on USA Network. It was also a taped show this week.

Overall, viewership was down from last week’s audience of 709,000 viewers, which hit a six-month high for the program. Besides the show being a taped broadcast, it was also up against the Tokyo Olympics, which drew a reported 14.263 million viewers on NBC (via SpoilerTV).

In the key P18-49 ratings demo, WWE NXT drew a 0.12 rating on SyFy. That’s down from the 0.20 rating in the same key demo for last week’s show.

WWE has already confirmed that next week’s edition of NXT TV will also be airing on SyFy due to the Summer Olympic Games coverage on USA.
