Dynamite in 2021 drew an average of 895,000 viewers across 52 weeks of programming, up from the 812,000 average it did in 2020.
It was all around a good year for AEW when it comes to viewers, and getting rid of NXT in head-to-head programming meant an increase as well. In the first three months until NXT moved in the beginning of April, Dynamite averaged 774,000 viewers but then shot up to a 937,000 average from April to December when it had no NXT head-to-head. Dynamite averaged a 0.34 rating in the 18-49 demo throughout the year.
While last year Dynamite passed the 1 million viewership only once, this year it did it 15 times. The September 8 episode of Dynamite, with the fallout from All Out, was the most-watched episode with 1,319,000 viewers and a 0.52 rating in the 18-49 demo. The September 22 show from the Arthur Ashe Stadium was the second most-watched with 1,273,000 viewers and a 0.48 rating.
The June 4 episode was the least-watched Dynamite ever with just 462,000 viewers but that aired on a late Friday night. It registered a 0.19 rating in the 18-49 demo.
