TBS averaged 1 million viewers for its inaugural AEW: Dynamite telecast Wednesday night, according to Nielsen.

Last night’s telecast of the pro wrestling series, which moved to TBS from TNT, posted an audience increase of 4% in total viewers compared to the last episode of the series on TNT airing December 29, said network officials. TBS’ AEW: Dynamite telecast also drew 558,000 adults 18-49, making it the second most-watched show on cable in the demo for the evening and the show’s best performance in the demo since September 29, 2021.

AEW: Dynamite, which debuted on TNT in 2019, moved to TBS to make room for additional TNT National Hockey League telecasts. The network began airing NHL games in October as part of a new seven-year rights deal with the league.
