Tony Khan Fires Shot After AEW Ratings Increase

Tony Khan AEW

The AEW ratings saw a recent upswing and Tony Khan has been wondering why the usual leaking of the fast national number did not happen.

The February 10th edition of Collision saw a big improvement in the ratings with the show averaging 491,000 viewers – an increase of over 20% from the previous week. It proved to be the biggest rating for the show since October 2023 and the eleventh-highest in the history of the show.

The show also had a massive 25% increase from the previous week in the 18-49 demo, drawing a 0.15 rating for the show headlined by Orange Cassidy defending the AEW International Championship against Tomohiro Ishii.

This rounded off a successful weekend for AEW with Friday night’s Rampage show as it drew its best viewership total since April 2023.

In recent months, Rampage and Collision have struggled to maintain a consistent number in the ratings and these are highlighted when fast national numbers – that are usually lower than the final rating are leaked to reporters.

Tony Khan Wonders Where The Fast Nationals Went

Where these leaks come from is anyone’s guess but if you asked Tony Khan he might mention a sports entertainment company based in Stamford, CT as a good place to start. Khan took to social media to question the lack of fast national numbers reported after a strong weekend for AEW:

Thank you all who watch @AEW! This past weekend was our best ratings on TNT in months: the most viewers for Saturday Night #AEWCollision since October, + most viewers for Friday Night #AEWRampage since last April! We’ll see you on TBS for Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite TOMORROW!

I was wondering all weekend, where are the Fast Nationals? Now we know.

Tony Khan has announced a major show for Boston in March as AEW looks set to add at least one major name to its roster.
