    The observations about the competition seem pretty tired. Seriously, there were more than a dozen other shows that managed to compete better in the target demos. If it isn't the NFL then it's the NBA or the NFL Draft or March Madness or The World Midget Poker Tour On Ice

  2. Whatever says:

    I love to be the obvious one here to say that a 0.99 does not come out to a 1.1 it is 1.0. A couple high points though: I said in a previous article that tna would not pull anything higher than a 1.0 and also I think this is what the third week in a row tna failed to pull anything higher than 1.0. Oh sorry slap nuts I didn’t say it was high points for tna. Tna is number 1 or sorry actually it’s #30. Ha ha ha ha ha

    It's called perspective. On the night of the first round of the NFL Draft, no wrestling show is going to out duel the NFL. I mean hello, some of the worst matchups on MNF kick Raw's @$$ in the ratings. Same thing for the NBA playoffs. If the NFL Draft isn't on last night, more people watch TNA. I watched the draft because I'm a huge football fan, both NFL and college. I'm also a big wrestling fan. People tend to watch events that only happen once a year than something that airs on a weekly basis, so keep that in mind.

    Can someone explain something to me?
    When the show gets higher ratings, but lower viewers, does that mean the viewers were more consistent, there were just less than that of a higher rating?

    • Jon says:

      I noticed that myself & was trying to make sense of it tbh (and I deal with TV ratings for a living). Maybe it's late & I'm just having a severe brain cramp but off hand the only way I think of that to actually happen — other than a rounding quirk — would be if the size of the total TV universe changed (which is does officially once a year, usually in September).

    I don't know what night would be best for TNA to move to so they don't go up against other sporting events or other really popular shows, but Thursday has not been good to them. Maybe Wednesday 9 to 11.

    • Jon says:

      I don't think I'd want to be going against Duck Dynasty on Wednesday nights any time soon 😉 (most watched show on cable since Walking Dead season ended). That would let them avoid some football competition however.

      The only weeknight that doesn't consistently have a powerhouse show appears to be Tuesday or Friday (and Friday night is the smallest total audience for television other than Saturday night, so you don't really want that)

      • jbcissom says:

        I actually wish TNA would move to A&E and A&E would pair DD and Impact! together on Wed nights.

      • tnadude says:

        I lke Duck Dynasty, but it's not a show that will still be popular in 2 – 3 years either. It tends to get repetitive at times and has limited storyline potential.

        That said, I do look forward to it today.

  6. key lock says:

    Wrestling in general is not as popular as 10 years ago ,these days people want to be entertained hence the fact wwe is in the entertainment business for the last 5 years or so TNA needs to be a good biotch and take it up the ass wrestling will never be huge AGAIN EVER

  7. Bartab says:

    Funny aint money!

  8. JoeWrestling says:

    Still plenty of people watching wrestling, it's called UFC. People actually believe the trash talking on there is real. Good for them.

  9. KilloWare1996 says:

    TNA needs more wrestling and needs to expose their company more to get more viewers. The reason why WWE has got more viewers is because more kids like tuning into their product to see people like Sheamus, Randy Orton and lastly Super "Steroid" Cena. TNA, ROH, PWG and just about any other indy company should be more popular than WWE because they actually use their wrestlers well.
