The event drew 0.18 in the A18-49 demo. The event on Fox adjusted to 0.6 in the A18-49 demo.

Payout Perspective:

The 3 hour event did well however, its clear that putting the prelims on Fox greatly improves its ratings.  With the downturn in Fox ratings, we will see if April’s event on Fox has the prelims on the network or pushes it to FS1.
