More On The TNA iMPACT! Timeslot Change

UPDATE: As previously reported, TNA iMPACT! Wrestling is moving to 9PM ET starting May 30th. TNA has had issues with hour one (the 8PM to 9PM hour) since they made the move to 8PM. In 2013, the company has averaged a 1.0 for the first hour, but the last three weeks, the show has pulled a 0.82, 0.91, and 0.85 rating in that first hour. This is part of the reason for the change. More shortly.

ORIGINAL: Dixie Carter posted the following on Twitter today…

BIG NEWS! Beginning May 30th, #IMPACTLive moves back to its old time at 9/8C on @SpikeTV! See ya Thursdays at 8/7C until then, though!

More shortly.

    What will be the next excuse if the ratings stay the same and don’t improve with the move back. Tna as a company, Ditsy Carter, spike tv and tna fan boys are starting to run out of excuses why their product sucks and can’t pull in higher ratings. Oh sorry ur biggest excuse is marketing.

      Just because they're not pulling in big ratings doesn't mean the product "Sucks". Take WWE for example, in 1997 RAW pulled in some of it's lowest ratings ever, yet that was the year of the Hart Foundation vs Steve Austin, Undertaker vs Kane, the birth of DX, ECW Invasion etc…

      Why do people so obsessed about television ratings for? Just enjoy the product.

        i agree completely. some ppl get giant ass boners over ratings i think.

        tna do have structuring of their divisions to do. but they have a fairly good tv product atm imo.

        ppl compare them to wwe and its like come on. wwe has a lot more to work with than tna do so they should be getting better ratings better media exposure.

        by some ppl's logic some reality tv shows are fantastic cos they get good ratings (i assume anyway).

      When youve finished wanking vkm off watch the show see the product and the quality of the wrestling

      Go and troll in the WWE forums if you don't like TNA products.

        Why is it that u dumb ass tna fan boy bitches always throw wwe’s name or VKM name when someone says tna SUCKS. Not one time in MY OPINION did I ever mention wwe. Which would mean only one thing, I don’t watch wwe u bitches. It is cause of the fans on this website with their stupid comments about comparing two different wrestling companies why I will not give tna a chance and why I will never watch their shows or ppv. Oh and believe it or not ratings count in tv. Soon spike tv will come to their senses and drop tna cause they are tired of dishing out their own money to keep tna going. He’ll panda energy won’t dish out anymore money so that goes to show u how much faith they have in their own product.

    • ariesstormjoe says:

      right cos tna have moved timeslots just cos of ratings.

      you know bellator is on a wednesday when it returns right? meaning theres time there that tna can move back to its original timeslot.

      sorry but you have a short sighted problem. "oooh numbers. numbers low they mean bad. oooh numbers drop or rise means bad or good respectively". sorry that is too short sighted. ppl can interpret numbers however they like but they'll be wrong pretty much no matter what cos of a variable that they over look.

    just a thought that come to mind, i think wwe rating might be hurting, because the last few weeks they havent shown highlights of raw or smackdown on youtube so that tell you something

  3. brooksideraider says:

    Raw dropped below 3.0 this week. It seems like ratings for wrestling may be down across the board right now.

  4. SageStinger says:

    All this talk about ratings, time slots, networks, blah blah blah. TNA is doing some really really great stuff right now, and them being on the road as well is awesome. I know that these things are important, but, i'm just happy watching the product right now and I know that TNA is going nowhere but up.

    TNA 4 Life!

    I stopped watching WWE totally cause of the bullshit that they are doing with their matches. I am sick of the crap. Example…Ziggle Jericho match. Great match and a pay per view match….till they had that Fandango intro music come up. It ruined a great match and that was the straw the broke the camels back.

    I am a TNA fan cause they might be small but they have a better product. Now if they would bring back the 6 sided ring i would be happier.

    As for rating….i give crap about ratings. I care about the show and how good it is. If it is a good show then I will watch it. Rating are just the man's way of choosing which shoes stay on the air.

    Just my 25 cents worth!!!

    • Whatever says:

      Yeah and if spike tv cancels tna cause of piss pour ratings how r u going to watch their product. I don’t see any other station that is willing to pick them up. Bellator is in limbo right now and soon the same thing could happen to tna.
