The ratings for AEW’s Winter Is Coming themed edition of Dynamite are in.

The show drew 948,000 viewers, up from the 872,000 viewers the show previously drew last week. In the 18-49 demographic, the show did a 0.31 rating, which is down from the 0.33 last week.  Brandon Thurston of WrestleNomics reported the news.

The key demo rating was the lowest in Dynamite’s normal time slot since May 19th, which also happened on November 24th and December 1st. The show opened with Adam Page defending the AEW World Title against Bryan Danielson that ended in a 60-minute draw.

Last year’s special did 913,000 viewers and 0.42 key demo rating. That show, which did go head-to-head with WWE NXT, featured Sting’s unadvertised debut as well as Kenny Omega beating Jon Moxley to win the AEW World Heavyweight Title in the main event.
