First Hour Break Down
Q1: Impact opened with a 1.08 rating for Bully Ray’s show-opening promo, Jeff Hardy returning to TV, and Daniels & Kaz interrupting to set up the TV main event. There was also half of a commercial.

Q2: Impact dropped to a 0.97 rating for Velvet Sky vs. Tara in one of two Knockouts matches this week. Pre-match intros went longer than the match, though, and there were one-and-a-half commercial breaks.

Q3: Impact increased to a 1.04 rating for Austin Aries vs. Hernandez and one commercial.

Q4: Impact increased to a first-hour-high 1.10 rating for Kenny King capturing the X Division Title from Rob Van Dam and two full commercial breaks. It appears that even the minimalist of hype (as opposed to zero hype) for an X Division Title match has potential to attract an audience.

Second Hour Break Down
Q5: Impact popped to a 1.31 rating with a new wave of viewers tuning in to see Jeff Hardy, but finding Aces & Eights instead. Sting then joined the discussion to announce his team for Lethal Lockdown before a fight broke out. There was also one commercial.

Q6: Impact began its steady decline with a 1.27 rating for various videos and backstage segments wrapped around Ivelisse Veliz vs. Lei’d Tapa in a Knockouts Gut Check Challenge match.

Q7: Impact dipped again to a 1.23 rating for an update on A.J. Styles, a skit involving the Robbies, and hype for the TV main event.

Q8: Impact fell to a second-hour-low 1.13 rating for Jeff Hardy & Bully Ray vs. Daniels & Kazarian in the main event.

    what i don't get is Q5 how do we know they wanted jeff hardy? I mean look at Jeff hardy's segments they are typically lower than the rest of the program.

    Noticed something over the past 6 months… Q5 for a very long time now (since the time swap) has been the highest rated segment of just about every Impact!. And guess who has been in the majority of those… Sting.

    I'm just hoping TNA takes EY in a more serious direction this time around. Sting is living proof of being serious and comical, not to mention Aries and Roode have the comedy bit down now.

      If his character is too serious he won't be as over. He pops every time due to his comical character, lets not forget that.

      • jbcissom says:

        I agree. I'm just saying that I (and apparently many others) wish they would stop with the stripping comedy relief. Look at Aries and Roode. They're serious, yet comical. Same with Sting. Why can't TNA do that with EY?

        • Peckar says:

          They did try him being serious before. It didn't work. I aam not saying they shouldn't try. However it shouldn't take long to see if changing his character will work or not. If not he should drop back to the comedic character. I find him a nice change of pace during the show anyhow.

    I personally find Veliz vs. Lei’d Tapa match far more entertaining than Jeff hardy.
