Cody Rhodes has commented on the viewership numbers thus far for AEW’s weekly television show, Dynamite on TNT.
He did so when responding to a fan on his official Twitter account who brought up some comments made by Vince Russo on a recent episode of his podcast. Rhodes wrote the following:
“We are happy and our partner is happy. We overshot projections and set a record for a WM debut. This is the era of cord cutting, simulcast and dvr bumps. We are proud of how incredible the numbers have been and know we need to work hard now more than ever.”
While AEW has been off to a great start with Dynamite on TNT for the past three weeks, the viewership numbers for the show have been on a trend down since the premiere episode.
The same goes for NXT on the USA Network, which airs during the same time slot as AEW.
The premiere episode of Dynamite pulled in 1,409,000 while the second episode did 1,140,000 and the third episode, which was last week, averaged 1,014,000.
Rhodes is slated to challenge Chris Jericho for the AEW World Title at the Full Gear pay-per-view event next month.
