While the two shows did not go head-to-head once again this week, Week 48 of the Wednesday Night War went to AEW Dynamite over WWE NXT.
The numbers have just been released for last night’s post-All Out edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT. Dynamite aired on its normal timeslot this week but NXT aired on Tuesday due to the NHL Playoffs on the USA Network.
Wednesday’s Dynamite episode drew 1.016 million viewers (+9.5% from last week) on TNT, topping the 838,000 viewers garnered by Tuesday’s NXT Super Tuesday II by 21%, according to Showbuzz Daily.
AEW ranked #7 in the Cable Top 150 for the 18-49 demo and #55 in viewership.
Last week’s Dynamite episode drew 928,000 viewers and ranked #8 in the Cable Top 150, and #61 in viewership.
This is the best AEW viewership of 2020 and the third-best viewership of all-time. Their TNT premiere on October 2 drew 1.409 million viewers while the October 9 episode drew 1.018 million viewers. Their third episode drew 1.014 million viewers, but this is the first time the show has hit 1 million viewers since then.

This week’s 0.37 rating in the key demo is the second-best of the year, going back to the 0.38 that the Bash at the Beach special drew on January 15. This is the eighth-best 18-49 demographic of all-time.

Every Tuesday, Texas Dad Puts On A Show Outside Son’s Hospital Window During Chemo Treatments
Aiden Yielding of Fort Worth, Texas, is a 14-year-old boy who has been fighting leukemia since the beginning of 2020.
Because of the pandemic, parents Lori and Chuck were heartbroken to learn that only one of them could accompany Aiden to his chemotherapy treatments.
Since Lori works at the same hospital, it made more sense for her to be the one there with Aiden through his rigorous treatments.
But nothing was going to stop Chuck from being there, too. He wanted to find a way to show his son his support while also giving him something to smile about.
Watch the video below to see Chuck’s weekly tradition, which takes place every Tuesday under the window of whichever hospital room Aiden is in.
All the teen has to do is look down, and there’s his doting dad on the grass or in the parking lot — giving him the performances of a lifetime.
Kehlani And Russ Contemplate A Second Try At Love In Their ‘Take You Back’ Video
Kehlani‘s stellar year continues with a new video besides Russ. The Oakland singer impressed listeners, as she’s done for her entire career, with her phenomenal It Was Good Until It Wasn’t album. Its release has been supported by equally impressive and eye-catching videos for songs like “Toxic,” “F&MU,” and “Can I.”
Lending her vocals to fellow west coaster Russ, the two artists connect as two lovebirds attempting to make a broken relationship whole again for their “Take You Back” collaboration. Residing at edge of the old-style balconies to their respective homes, Russ begins the song by apologizing for his wrongs and forgiving Kehlani for her wrongs in their relationship before begging return so their relationship can continue.
“Young and in love, so we prone to mistakes /I ain’t gon’ front like I know what it takes,” he sings adding, “‘Cause I f*cked up, then you f*cked up / Now it’s f*cked up, goddamn.”
Now that he’s said what he needed to say, Kehlani steps in to discuss her own doubts about their relationship’s potential if they do decide to start it again. “Take you back, why should I take you back?” she questions while reminding him in the next line that it was, in fact, Russ who brought the relationship to an end. “You the one that f*cked this up, yeah / You the one that turned this out.”
However, Kehlani gives in to Russ’ requests as they reunite as one while the world crumbles and burns around them. Watch the “Take You Back” video above.
Kehlani is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
Karen boasts about not vaccinating her kid on Facebook—her kid’s pediatrician calls her out for lying
Karen the faux anti-vaxxer was called out on Facebook by her son’s pediatric nurse for lying about refusing to get him vaccinated.
In the post, Karen recounts taking her son in for a five-year check-up. Everything was supposedly fine and dandy until the nurse came in to give him a vaccine booster.
“I told her why I’d decided to decline it and she explained that it was my right to do so,” the woman writes.
Karen claims the nurse thanked her for taking a stand and told her “how much it pains her to have to give vaccines to uniformed families who don’t know they have a right to decline.”
The mother also says her son thanked her on the way home after she told him why she didn’t let him get the vaccine.
As it turns out, that was all an apparent lie.
Karen seemingly forgot she had the nurse as a friend on Facebook. And since she posted the fib on her wall rather than in a private group, the pediatric nurse took the opportunity to set the record straight in the comments.
“Believe it or not it’s completely legal for me to publicly state that I absolutely did not say that and for the record neither did you. It’s also not a HIPAA violation for me to say that I gave your son a shiny sticker at the end of the appointment for being brave, so people who read this post can take what they will from that,” the nurse wrote.
Though the nurse isn’t saying it outright as to not violate privacy laws, it seems they’re strongly hinting that the woman’s son did in fact get a vaccine that day.
The Facebook exchange was posted on multiple Reddit threads and has been seen by more than 100,000 people—many of whom expressed confusion as to why the mom would pretend to be an anti-vaxxer.
“This is super interesting that an anti-vaxxer would still get their children vaccinated. It means they probably do actually believe the science and want the best for their children but find something of value in the anti-vaxxer community,” wrote Reddit user u/TheMattHatter91.
