Warner Bros. Discovery appears to be very happy with AEW programming based on stats revealed by the company.

When All Elite Wrestling launched five years ago in January 2019, there were all kinds of questions about if they could get a national television deal. The debut episode of Dynamite aired in October 2019 on TNT and they were eventually moved to TBS, which is a sister network owned by WBD.

Since then, AEW also launched AEW Rampage in August 2021 for one hour on Friday nights as well as AEW Collision starting in June 2023 on Saturday nights for two hours.

While there are rumors about whether AEW will remain on WBD through 2024 and into the future, it appears as though WBD is happy with how things are going based on a press release that the company released.

TBS & TNT All Elite Wrestling Programming Delivered Banner Year

AEW Franchises across Warner Bros. Discovery’s Networks Continue to Deliver Consistent & Top-Ranked Programs

TNT and TBS have wrapped up another stellar year of AEW wrestling across its networks, including consistently delivering top-ranked programs each week while expanding AEW programming in mid-2023 through TNT’s AEW: Collision on Saturdays and continuing to broadcast memorable wrestling moments and storylines through TBS’ AEW: Dynamite on Wednesday nights and TNT’s AEW: Rampage on Friday nights.

AEW programs across TBS and TNT in 2023 ranked in the top 10 of all cable programs among adults under-50 72 times, including 50 times with a top-5 program in that coveted demo.

Viewership of AEW programming on the networks saw increasing momentum as the year culminated, reaching 15.6 million total viewers in Q4 2023, up 3% vs. Q4 2022.

Overall, AEW programming reached nearly four million viewers each week across TNT and TBS.

TBS continued its success into the new year, with this week’s AEW: Dynamite telecast delivering cable’s most-watched live sports program on the night among P25-54, and second-most watched live sports program on the night among P18-49. The program was also up double-digits in both demos vs. last week’s AEW: Dynamite telecast.

WBD’s action-packed AEW programming continues tonight with AEW: Rampage Homecoming at 10 p.m. ET on TNT and tomorrow with AEW: Collision at 8 p.m. ET on TNT. Next Wednesday’s AEW: Dynamite on TBS will feature AEW World Champion Samoa Joe taking on Hook for the title presented by WB Games’ Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.

Some People Associated With AEW Embarrassed By Tony Khan’s Social Media Usage

While WBD remains content with All Elite Wrestling programming, some people who work for AEW were embarrassed about Tony Khan’s latest Twitter/X outrage taking shots at WWE booking Jinder Mahal for a World Title match.

Meanwhile, WWE Hall of Famers like Bully Ray and Booker T both criticized Khan for his Twitter/X comments.
