The first hour of this week’s WWE NXT episode drew 1.006 million viewers on the USA Network. This is down from last week’s USA Network premiere, which drew 1.179 million viewers.
Like last week, the second hour of this week’s episode aired on the WWE Network and viewership for that service is not available. Both hours of NXT will begin airing on the USA Network with next Wednesday’s episode.
S.A.M.’s Spiel: I am only slightly disappointed that the ratings for NXT were down from last week. There was a ton of hype for the premiere episode, so many people likely tuned in to see what the hype was about. The ratings could reflect that some didn’t enjoy NXT as others or it is just the ebb and flow of television ratings.
