PWInsider is reporting that the XFL beat both WWE Raw and Smackdown! viewership at 4 Million total viewers. WWE’s flagship programs get around 2.5 million viewers on a weekly basis. The XFL also beat the ratings of the Alliance of American Football’s debut as well.
The XFL has better TV clearance than the AAF (And WWE Monday Night Raw), so it will be interesting to see how the ratings hold up week over week.
