WOW programs were able to stand out from other wrestling programs by offering television viewers and live event audience an all female troupe of performers who played campy villains and heroines in all sizes and nationalities. By being the only entertainment source of its kind, WOW captured a strong adult demographic following with its primary audience, the male television audience (18–49 years of age) generating 25% higher ratings than its secondary audience of young women (18-24), teens, and tweens (7-12). After a long hiatus, in December 2014, WOW! announced their launch into digital media in 2015. Marketed as "WOW Superheroes", its characters are empowered women from all different backgrounds and professions. Season 2 of the show premiered on March 1, 2016, on YouTube. Its fourth season premiered February 28, 2017. On April 20, 2017, MGM Television announced that Mark Burnett, MGM's President, Television Group & Digital, and Jeanie Buss formed a partnership to develop new content across a range of unscripted programming and digital formats for WOW!. Beginning with season 5, WOW will be broadcast on AXS TV. The two companies inked a deal in June 2018 for a weekly program, to be called WOW: Women of Wrestling, tapings for which commenced on October 10, 2018 at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, set to launch in early 2019. WOW debuted on January 18 as part of AXS's Friday Night Fights schedule that also includes New Japan Pro Wrestling and AXS TV Fights. This marked WOW's first return to network television since 2001.
