WWE Hypes Up NXT’s Successful Tuesday Night Move, Shares Social Media Engagement Numbers
WWE NXT has moved to Tuesday nights, and this shift has brought an end to the show’s direct competition with AEW Dynamite.
Based on the first outing, this move can be considered a success, in terms of the show’s ratings and its social media activity.
WWE passed along the following, noting NXT’s remarkable increases in viewership and engagement.
On the heels of last week’s NXT TakeOver: Stand and Deliver, which was the most-watched NXT TakeOver in history, NXT made its Tuesday night premiere last night on USA Network with impressive results across TV and social media.
NXT was up +16% YOY and had more viewers than the NBA game on TNT and NHL game on NBCSN in both P2+ and P18-49.
On social media, NXT was the most-social national TV show in primetime.
After the most watched #NXTTakeOver, Stand and Deliver, last night’s episode of #WWENXT was an epic night for @USA_Network AND the most socially active show on primetime television. Thank you for continually supporting YOUR brand!!! #WeAreNXT pic.twitter.com/5MItATYBGg
