Re: WWE NXT TV Ratings Thread: NO B.S.'ing THE NUMBERS.

Sadly, I'm guessing it'll be up in a month or so. Just like they don't upload Raw or Smackdown until way later. That's too bad because NXT was one of the main reasons I subscribed to the Network.

Hopefully, I am wrong.
They have the 1st live episode from USA on there, so going by that it seems as though they're gonna keep adding the latest NXT episodes on there i just don't know when.

I tried watching the episode on some other sites and the audio is out of sync on them.

It appears that Team Body was right all along, workrate doesn't draw.

HHH needs to try something new, maybe try pushing some people with charisma, try having promo battles, stop showing that generic bum Cameron Grimes in the first hour. They need to figure it out quick because once they drop below 600K Vince and Seth are going to be at Full Sail every week.

And still slayed that ass.
But I’m thinking they’re not just in this to beat NXT. Like if their numbers keep going down TNT is not going to be happy just because they’re beating NXT.

Cole is so damn charismatic he and UE should be starting every show with an in ring promo. I know the marks like to get right into the action but the casuals prefer a nice promo to start the show and tease some action.

It's week 2. My focus would be on being the #1 wrestling show on Wednesdays, which they instantly became.

6 months from now, hell even a year from now, if you want to takeover, go ahead.

But no one should expect a company that is trying to build no name guys like MJF and Cassidy into household names that are on par with a Mox or Jericho are going to beat WWE instantly, even if all that WWE has today is the 'name'.

As for the original poster trying to laugh at AEW's drop by comparing it to NXT's first 2 weeks. NXT had no competition their first 2 weeks, and still dropped. What should be more alarming to you is that the show you are bashing for it's drop, has taken over the one you are trying to prop up.

NXT started over 1 mil..little more and now in high 700,000 digits. Each week less..what's the point theyll wait until they push the panic button? AEW numbers also went down of course too.

Re: WWE NXT TV Ratings Thread: NO B.S.'ing THE NUMBERS.

AEW was also on TruTV and got a little over 100k and puts them over 1.1K.

Sad because both AEW and NXT are much better watches than Raw or SD I wish they weren't going head-to-head honestly.

Baseball games drew away fans from both shows IMHO. I look for both shows to stay even next week. Actually I expect a slight increase from AEW.

AEW was always going to drop a lot of viewers. NXT's numbers aren't bad in themselves but the rate of decline shows little sign of slowing and that will be noticed.

Re: WWE NXT TV Ratings Thread: NO B.S.'ing THE NUMBERS.

I knew someone would use this bit of spin doctoring

Their numbers are still higher either way, so it's a moot point
What's the spin? AEW lost more viewers in one week than NXT did over 4 weeks. AEW lost almost a third of their viewers in one week. The viewership gap between the two shrunk by more than half in one week.

AEW is an uber hyped new show with a ton of advertising, bigger production values, huge arenas, bigger paychecks than WWE's main roster. And according to the owner, co owners, and fanbase has the best wrestlers in world, nobody comes close.

NXT is a minor league sub division of WWE over 6 years old. Playing in front of crowds of 1,500 max weekly.

It's not really a moot point. It's something of concern for AEW/TNT. And NXT is not immune to it either. They lost viewers over the weeks too.

You're spinning this bit of information like it's a victory for NXT, but since their numbers are still lower than AEW's, it is not.

NXT being six years old is irrelevant. It's attached to a much, much mightier brand (WWE) and most casuals don't subscribe to the Network, so NXT should still feel like a newer thing to them now that it's on prime time

Actually that's wrong

NXT lost 389K

AEW lost less than 300K

I'm not spinning the info to claim a victory. That would involve giving false info or lying. I'm just using the info at hand, if the info is incorrect then fine, my apologies., but I'm certainly not trying to lie. I'm pointing out an interesting turn of events, not claiming a victory. Next week could go back to like the first week for both NXT/AEW for all I know.

Like I stated, NXT (while still dropping viewers) closed the gap with AEW. This week NXT put on one of their more "normal" shows. AEW on the other hand pulled out all stops again. Including the WCW type ending. I honesty believe NXT was pleased with the numbers. Their not overjoyed victory claiming, but definitely happy.

Spin doctoring doesn't mean you lied, it just means you are presenting a warped perception of the facts to try make something seem better (or worse) than it really is

AEW did drop a larger percentage from its first week to its second than NXT did, that is true. But AEW had higher viewership to begin with, and its second week matches the ratings of NXT's very first week. So AEW>NXT still in my book

Re: WWE NXT TV Ratings Thread: NO B.S.'ing THE NUMBERS.

AEW : 1409 - 1140 = 269

NXT : 1179 - 790 = 389
AEW did 1,018 this week on TNT. The topic of discussion against NXT on USA. All the other numbers are correct that you listed.

Now if you want to factor in TruTV showing. Then you now have to factor in the percentage of the 1.5 million plus WWE Network subscribers that have access to NXT, and can watch it on there. The place where 100% of their fan base are used to watching NXT at their leisure. And then do that for not just this week, but for all the 3 previous weeks too. USA is just another avenue to watch NXT now.

NXT is still on the Network. I'll bet anything, not every single fan now only watches on USA. They absolutely brought in brand new viewers to the product that don't have the network. What that number is, I have no clue.

Then if we are going to count Network views of NXT, we have to count views of the numerous replays of Dynamite that are shown on TNT. TBS, an Tru TV during the rest of the week

:draper2

Want to keep going down that rabbit hole? You're wrong admit it and move on.

You can add all the repeat viewings all you want. And TBS, when that ever starts.The initial point has been proven. TNT vs USA viewership. AEW took a major hit this week. Next week is a different story. Anything can happen. AEW could get 3 million viewers on TNT.
