The show faced unusual competition as Fox aired an NFL game in primetime, which did a 3.78 P18-49 rating and was watched by 14.9 million viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.
I point out median age because NXT's is remarkably high compared to other weekly wrestling programs, and has been trending older. But remember linear TV skews old in general.— Brandon Thurston (@BrandonThurston) December 22, 2021
On most days, primetime viewers are only 20-25% in the P18-49 demo, so similar to what NXT does. pic.twitter.com/jBKf7MMojV
