Via Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics.com, here were the quarter hours for the show…
Q1 – 1.258 million viewers (start of Bryan Danielson vs. Kenny Omega)
Q2 – 1.373 million viewers (Danielson vs. Omega continued)
Q3 – 1.334 million viewers (End of Danielson vs. Omega and most of CM Punk promo)

Total viewership was remarkably stable in the second hour, but younger viewers in the demo declined for the rest of the show while viewers outside the demo increased.
The main event was the low point for 18-34, but 2nd-highest outside 18-49.https://t.co/3LtEEk1se7
