Tony Khan Pulls Ratings Receipts Against Fox News, Believes They Shouldn't Play 'Boar On The Floor'

Tony Khan has responded to Fox News.

On Thursday, Fox News published an article titled "Jaguars' Urban Meyer drama, AEW excitement cooling off part of rough month for Khans." The majority of the focus centered around the Jacksonville Jaguars, but did mention AEW's viewership taking a dip compared to the summer numbers.

From the article:

AEW had a very successful summer with the acquisitions of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole from WWE. AEW’s shows "Dynamite" and "Rampage" each popped with more than 1 million total viewers at their peaks.

"Dynamite" peaked at 1.319 million viewers Sept. 8 when Punk addressed fans for the first time since appearing at All Out. "Rampage" peaked at 1.129 million on Aug. 20 when Punk made his debut in Chicago.

Since then, things cooled off with "Rampage," attracting around 500,000 viewers. "Dynamite" attracted over 900,000 viewers Wednesday for the first time since mid-November thanks to its "Winter is Coming" special

AEW will look to build upon some of the momentum it gained toward the end of 2021. AEW will have a lot of time to build up its top stars as its first PPV of 2022 isn’t set until March.

Tony Khan took to social media to respond to the article, pointing out that even if AEW's viewership is declining, it's still better than Fox News' numbers in the demo. Fox News is far ahead in terms of overall viewership.

Boar on the Floor is game made popular in season two of "Succession" where, well, you can see the clip below to try to figure out what's actually going on.

Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Rampage beginning at 10 p.m. ET on Friday. You can view the lineup for the show by clicking here.
