Thursday night’s episode of iMPACT! Wrestling scored a 0.82 (0.8) cable rating, with 1.08 million viewers. Those numbers are down 16% and 4%, respectively, from the 0.95 and 1.13 million in the previous week.
As far as competition is concerned, TNA did face stiff challenges in their key demos with a major Thursday night NFL game between the New York Giants and Chicago Bears (7.8 million viewers) and the MLB playoffs (5.445 million viewers). Regardless of competition, the decline in viewership for TNA can’t be considered a good thing as they head into their biggest annual event, Bound For Glory, on October 20th.
