    Though the American fanbase is small on the scale of people who watch television, compared to the UK ratio, there are still over 2 million people here who would enjoy watching these TNA shows just as much as the UK fans, and are just as deserving of it.

    Yeah it's great that TNA is putting on good programming, but the fact that we in the US only get 2 hours of TNA, while a small place with only a few hundred thousand viewers for their shows such as the UK, get loads of TNA TV–it grows annoying.

    Put some shows on American tv. It won't get super ratings, but then again if you're just concerned about not as many people are watching as opposed to caring that people are watching it at all, well that's just..

      Hey Dante, TNA cant get a 2nd show right this second because of the contract they have with SPIKE, but according to Dixie thats suppose to change soon.

      They've got to prove they can get advertiser dollars for them. It's just a two-part special. It's a perfect fit for the UK (which rarely gets a tour), and will likely command typical UK ratings. Here in the US, it would probably get 10% ratings. While that's about even with what they'd see in the UK, they'd wind up with little to no advertising revenue here in the States.

      We'll have to settle on watching it on YouTube.

    TNA has two shows it's called

    OVW.com

    watch weekly and see TNA Stars like

    Doug Williams
    Taeler Henderix
    Crimson
    Jesse Goderez
    Rob Terry
    Alex Silva
    Sam Shaw

    that's up to 7 potential matches featuring TNA Roster members

    • Dante_Cross says:

      Yeah there is OVW, but I said TNA show. Developmental shows on local networks that I dont get do not count.

      • tnadude says:

        Exactly. And while ROH is a refreshing alternative, it doesn't really count as a national show IMO either.

        That reminds me – I've got to figure out what's going on with my Sinclair affiliate. My DVR has missed several weeks now…

      • whatsup121 says:
