The ratings and viewer data are in for the September 20th edition of NXT.
According to Showbuzz Daily, the pre-recorded follow-up to last week’s anniversary/farewell episode was viewed by 688,000 in total, with a score of 0.15 among 18-49 year olds. That’s a 5.5% drop in viewership from September 13. The demo track is unchanged.
There was no live sports on national television last night, so against the usual competition from talk and reality shows, that rating helped NXT get back into the top ten original cable channels. WWE & USA finished seventh behind four Fox News programs and two ESPN programs.
It’s expected that NXT’s return to a black-and-gold motif – and whatever other changes Triple H, Shawn Michaels & company have in store for us – will deliver a track when they debut in two weeks. For now, everyone is probably happy that the show maintains the level it reached when The Game took over from its father-in-law last month.
Here’s our usual look at NXT’s viewership and 18-49-year-old demo ratings from the past year:
