The Rating For This Past Wednesday Night’s TNA iMPACT! Broadcast – Did The Move Affect Them?

0

The final rating for the Wednesday debut of iMPACT! Wrestling is in. The show
scored a 0.65 (0.7) cable rating, which is down from the 0.96
(1.0) cable rating the show drew last week in its regular timeslot on Thursday
night.

The show had an average audience of 852,000, down from last week’s 1.126
million viewers. It’s pretty safe to say that the change of nights on only one
week’s notice hurt the number. Both TNA and SpikeTV expected a big drop during
the first week and the hope is that the numbers will rise back up to normal
levels once fans become aware that the show has moved timeslots. It should be
noted that many viewers were unaware that the show had moved to Wednesday
night’s as many of them were on Twitter asking where iMPACT! Wrestling was last
night. Here are just a few of the many comments from fans on Twitter last
night:

“why isnt Impact wrestling on 8/21/14”

“what happened to all of the tna stars”

“no tna impact for 8-21-2014”

We should have a clearer idea of how the show will perform on the new night
after 4-6 weeks.
