In regards to key demographic viewership, Dynamite saw 560,000 viewers aged between 18 and 45 years old, equating to a 0.43 rating. This rating is also up from the December 29th rating of 0.37. As noted by Thurston, this is the highest 18 to 49 rating since September 29th.
As reported by ShowBuzz Daily, Dynamite ranked 2nd overall for key demographic viewership on Wednesday night. The show was only beaten by NBA basketball in the key ratings.
