NXT viewership shoots up as the black and gold brand returns to the USA Network.
PWTorch reports the August 10 episode of NXT drew 751,000 viewers, which is significantly greater than the 520,000 viewers amassed not only last week but the week before also.
The show posted a 0.19 rating in the 18 to 49 demographic, which is up from the 0.10 demographic rating the show posted last week.
This week, NXT returned to the USA Network after spending two weeks on SyFy due to being preempted by the Olympics.
The Tuesday night show would see Kyle O'Reilly and Adam Cole accept the terms for their NXT TakeOver 36 match, which will be contested in a Three Stages of Hell Match, which is being dubbed The Undisputed Finale. Also, Cameron Grimes and LA Knight have agreed to meet in a match where Ted DiBiase’s services as a butler will be up for grabs.
