The fact that Impact is going up against both NBA games and now the NCAA men's tournament, it's amazing that their ratings haven't plunged. If I was with either Spike or TNA I would be thrilled with the ratings staying steady. It shows that TNA has a solid core following. 
 
FYI, the folks at Spike TV are again talking re-branding the company. The whole guys' channel approach has only succeeded at telling half the available audience this channel isn't for them.

i didn't know it was up against any sports, so again, it's stupid that some dirtsheet feels the need to stir shit without presenting all the facts.
 
had read that they were even thinking of changing the name of the channel this time, which would make sense i guess since so as to avoid the stigma attached to the Spike name.

I was reading a story that Spike was ready to give up entirely on reality TV shows as well.  Plus I think they are missing the broader audience they were attracting back in their TNN days. They only have to look at USA, TNT and TBS to see 3 channels that are doing very good without hardly anything resembling reality TV on them.

little disappointing, but not as bad as they're making out:
 
 
Quote

TNA did its absolute best to push the live episode of Impact that aired this past Thursday night (April 11, 2013) on Spike TV from Corpus Christi, Texas, heavily pushing a pay-per-view (PPV) quality main event match with Jeff Hardy challenging Bully Ray for the heavyweight championship in a Full Metal Mayhem match.

That's the TNA version of a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match, and its the first time the company has busted it out since Bound for Glory on Oct. 16, 2011.

Despite that, and all the heavy promotion for the show itself, Impact did just a 0.9 rating with an average of 1.17 million viewers. That's good for the lowest of the year in both categories, and it's not even close either. The first hour scored a 0.82 and the second a 1.03.

The quarter hour ratings pattern show a severe lack of interest in the entire show save for the main event. The first hour was particularly dreadful, which saw Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez win the tag team titles from Austin Aries and Bobby Roode, a Knockouts segment, and Gut Check nonsense.

It didn't get any better at the start of the second hour with Hulk Hogan making his way out to address AJ Styles. It wasn't until the Hardy and Ray match was introduced that the rating went up and got to its highest point for the match itself. Sure, that's where most of the promotion for the entire show went but it's odd to see the numbers so heavily focused on one match.

It's hard to explain this one, but with WrestleMania having come and gone, it's possible fans are just burned out.

For complete results and reactions to this weeks episode of Impact click here and here, and for a playlist of the show click here.

even the first hour rating is not that bad, but for a show they have been hyping, then yeah, it is a disappointment, but perhaps a sign that the fans that do tune in aren't completely happy with the new PPV schedule, and would rather matches like that are saved for a PPV.

The funny part is that the main event wasn't the best part of the show. I thought the opening tag match was actually PPV caliber. 
 
Once again I remind people not to look at the ratings percentage (0.9) and instead look at the viewer count (1.17 million.) The viewer number did drop. I have no idea why except for the fact that last week's show was bad.

last week's show would also have been the taped show, so maybe the drop off there was due to spoilers and people not tuning in.
personally, i hated the fact that Hardy was able to say he had to earn his title match through the fatal 4 way after Lock Down, when he surely had in his contract the right to a rematch. it felt like forcing the point of him not only being a face, but a face that has to overcome the odds. very unecessary.

Quote Thursday's episode of Impact Wrestling scored a 0.99 cable TV rating, which is up from last week's year-low 0.94 rating. 

Impact averaged 1.27 million viewers, which is up from last week's year-low-average of 1.10 million viewers. 

Impact ranked #35 on cable TV Thursday night in overall viewers.
There was no NBA playoff games running against TNA.
 
I have to put the own-ness on TNA. Right now, you can easily miss a couple of weeks of show and not miss any storyline development. Nobody feels like they "have" to watch, because they know that they can just pick up next time.

Quote Several of Spike TV's top executives were in attendance at the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings last week. Spike is pleased with the ratings that TNA have been generating lately, as they feel the company's draw helps Spike's overall pritime average and it allows them to sell their primetime advertising stock at a much higher rate. 

There has been no talk of Spike being unhappy with TNA's performance in their ratings.
Why would Spike be upset with TNA's ratings? Without UFC they have nothing else bringing in reliable numbers. 

I'm still waiting for Spike or MTV Networks to purchase TNA from Panda. I think that is far more likely than WWE ever purchasing the company.

Quote The Thursday, August 8th taped edition of TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV drew a final cable rating of 0.96, according to Nielsen Media Research. The 0.96 number is down from the 1.03 figure that the live edition of show drew last Thursday night.

The show has declined each week since the "Destination-X" special edition of Impact Wrestling, which drew a 1.16 cable rating on July 18h. The following week, July 25th, the show drew 1.05. The week after that, August 1st, the show drew the aforementioned 1.03 number. And as mentioned, thiis week's show continued the downward trend, coming in at a 0.96.

It will be interesting to see next week's number, as the company will present the "Hardcore Justice" special edition of TNA Impact Wrestling.

This week's Impact Wrestling averaged 1.179 million viewers, down approximately five percent from the 1.246 million viewers that the show drew last week.

Impact Wrestling ranked number 42 on cable television Thursday night. The show finished number 30 among males 18-34, and number 28 among males 14-49.
FYI... ignore that share number 1.16. The revised ratings info has lower that. Instead focus on the viewer count: 1.179 million. There was a time when TNA would consistently draw between 1.4 - 1.6 million viewers. Now they are pulling in the sort of numbers that prompted Spike to kill the Monday night experiment.

The big cable shows that dominated the night:
  • Discovery Channel's Shark Week specials drew solid ratings all week long. 
  • History Channel has moved Pawn Stars to Thursday. And when they had a new episode on they were beating Raw. TNA doesn't stand a chance. Pawn stars draws good numbers in the key male demos. 
  • Pre-season NFL. NFL always hurts wrestling. They both target the same male demographic.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Nick hyped the new episode and drew a respectable 3.1 million viewers.

Quote Thursday's "Hardcore Justice" edition of TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV drew 1.319 million viewers, up from the 1.179 million viewers who tuned into Impact Wrestling last week.

The increase in ratings is definitely a positive for the company, as the show went up against another round of NFL pre-season games on ESPN, as well as other locally television games. The ESPN game on Thursday night drew 2.969 million viewers. The highest rated show on cable on Thursday, however, was once again Pawn Stars, which drew 4.388 million viewers and 4.207 million viewers for their two back-to-back 30 minute episodes.

While the 1.319 million viewers for the "Hardcore Justice" edition of Impact Wrestling is up from last week's show, it is down from the last pay-per-view themed show, as the "Destination X" edition of Impact Wrestling on July 18th drew 1.494 million viewers.
Yeah, well lets see what happens next week. Hardcore Justice didn't exactly live up to its name.
