NXT Ratings Report (11/28): Viewership down last two weeks, sharp decline in one demo over yearly average, plus 7-day totals for October


Tuesday’s (11/28) episode of NXT on USA Network drew an average of 659,000 viewers, up from 622,000 last week, but well below the prior ten weeks which averaged 784,000. The “big name guest stars” from Raw and cross-promotion on Raw has tapered off lately and it’s led to a ratings decline, along with added competition from the NHL and NBA national and regional cable broadcasts. Last night’s episode did feature guest appearances from former NXT wrestlers who are part of Raw now. The episode headline with Wes Lee vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Bronson Reed vs. Cameron Grimes

In the key 18-49 demo, it drew a 0.18 rating, down from 0.19, 0.21, 0.26, 0.20, 021, 0.23, 0.30, and 0.22 the prior eight weeks. The average demo rating through 48 weeks this year is 0.18, so this week’s rating was average for 2023.

It ranked no. 17 among all shows on broadcast and cable, and no. 3 among all cable shows in the 18-49 demo. The NBA on TNT drew a 0.64 demo rating and 2.002 million viewers and ranked no. 1 on cable and no. 2 overall behind only “Dancing with the Stras” on ABC.
