Double it up. To say this week’s episode of Dynamite was a smashing success would be the understatement of the week. The show drew over 1.4 million viewers and had a rating in the 18-49 demographic that beat the previous week’s SmackDown Live. That’s not bad for the first edition of the show and it was so good that it is already time to spread things out a little bit.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW is set to have a second show that will air Sunday nights on TBS from 10:30-11:30. The show will not be original content, but rather an edited version of the week’s edition of Dynamite. There is no word on when the show will begin to air, though this coming Sunday night is a possibility. There are currently no plans on a second original weekly AEW program.
AEW already had a great preview before Wednesday’s show. Check out the road to Dynamite:
Opinion: I’m sure this show was planned in advance, but it’s something else that AEW can brag about. They get to showcase themselves on a different network and that could very easily bring in some extra eyes to the regular show. The key at this point is getting people to give them a chance and the more places they are on the air, the better chance that is going to happen.
What did you think of this week’s show? Can AEW continue this level of success? Let us know in the comments below.
