The key to this rating, which the total viewers-obsessed may miss, is this:

NXT did more than 2/3rds of Raw hr 3 and SmackDown’s demo ratings this week; it was also more than 1/2 of the Raw hr 1 & 2 demo ratings. If they can maintain this—who knows w/ AEW—that’s a huge success. https://t.co/XK0ZxIsLsM
