WWE NXT Viewership Sees Significant Drop For 9/7 Episode
NXT viewership saw another drop this week.
This week’s episode of WWE NXT (aired September 7) brought in 601,000 viewers, which is down from the 717,000 viewers the show brought in on August 31. This week’s total also represents the lowest number of viewers NXT has had on USA Network since the show drew 558,000 viewers on February 10, 2021. (NXT brought in 520,000 viewers in consecutive weeks on July 27 and August 3, but those shows were pre-empted and instead aired on SyFy due to USA’s Olympics coverage in Tokyo.)
NXT also scored a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is down from 0.17 for last week’s show. NXT finished 31st on the night for cable shows; the show was 23rd last week.
This week’s episode of NXT featured two tag team championship matches, Carmelo Hayes vs. Santos Escobar and the debut of Indi Hartwell’s best friend, “Persia.” Check out full results from this week’s show at this link. This week’s NXT also marked the end of an area, as the September 14 show will officially kick off an extensive “revamp” of the brand.
