I thought it would do close to 1.5M.
You're going really high, most estimates for both shows I saw were around 800-900k with 1m being the high end and considered really good.

I think that this is going to be their "base" number.

I think AEW will do fine even after the first show. I think wrestling fans especially those that really like NXT, will like the novelty of being able to flip between wrearling shows. I didn't think AEW could get a 1, but if NXT got that then they certainly should clear it or be damn close to it.

That's a good result for NXT. At the upper end of what I guessed. Probably did enough to hold on to the audience.

It beat every Miz and Mrs episode this season and Miz show has benefit of
1. Airing after SD so having 2+ million wrestling fans already watching TV
2. Featuring people who are known to tv watching audiences one of them a former Wrestlemania maineventer

NXT to my knowledge had nobody on the show that appeared on cable prior to last night

UFC debut on ESPN with massive hype using Disney machine drew 1.46 million viewers and a former champion who destroyed Lesnar in mainevent

MLB on primetime Fox this past Thursday did 1.7 million.

Wrestling fans overestimate greatly how many watch TV in 2019 outside ultra special events
Bennu, fabi1982 and DammitC like this.

Great, wrestling has always drawn more than the random MLB games and UFC has never drawn amazing numbers on TV outside the first big Fox event years ago and the first Ultimate Fighter in 05 and the one in 09 with Kimbo. What's your point? Wrestling has hemorrhaged viewers at a much higher rate than most things on TV with no end in site. At some point, TV executives will see it's silly to pay huge numbers for declining programming that isn't even attractive to advertisers, which pro wrestling historically has never been.

Yawn.

1) Some episodes of the Miz's reality show drew over a million viewers. As an example, an August episode pulled in 1.094 million viewers. Barely any less than NXT's number.

2) NXT was advertised heavily on WWE programming. It also had a strong timeslot.

3) A live wrestling show will always draw more than a spin-off reality show. The Miz also main-evented wrestlemania almost a decade ago, and was merely a side salad to Cena and Rock anyway.
