AEW is slated to bring back pro wrestling to TBS.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that AEW will premiere their second TV show on TBS as a part of their Sunday night line-up soon.
This program is described as an edited highlight version of the AEW Dynamite show that airs earlier in the week on TNT. As of this writing, there’s no word yet on when the AEW TBS show will premiere.
AEW Dynamite made its premiere this past Wednesday night by going head-to-head with WWE NXT on the USA Network and crushed in viewership.
Back in September, it was reported that AEW was in talks for another TV show that at the time was thought to be a studio show, similar to the new WWE Backstage show, which premieres on FS1 next month.
WarnerMedia’s Brett Weitz, who is the general manager for TNT, TBS and truTV, confirmed the reports at the time while doing an interview with The Wrap.
AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes went on record recently by noting that although the third hour of AEW content was being considered, he indicated that it may be filmed with the weekly Dynamite tapings. It would likely be dark matches and possibly air on B/R Live, instead of TNT.
