Last night's episode of iMPACT! Wrestling brought in a 1.03 (1.0) cable rating, with 1.49 million viewers. The rating is identical with last week's rating, though viewership is up from 1.4 million viewers. The show saw an increase in the male demographics, with a 1.00 rating among men 18 - 49, up 0.2. It was also up a tenth of a point among males 18 - 34, and was even among teen males, all adults 18 - 34 and all adults 18 - 49. The show ranked #29 on cable TV for the night, #13 among males 18-34 and #9 among males 18-49. All of those are improvements over recent weeks.
