    So the trend is that the ratings tend to be the lowest from the start and go up from there. I'd be perfectly happy with them going to 9pm til 11pm, personally – especially since my son goes to bed closer to 9pm, less having to pause it.

    After looking at the quarter ratings, I think tna should start the show off with something higher then 0.81, and try to keep people into the show the whole episode of impact

    We need another Knockouts main event… maybe Gail Kim vs. Mickie James…

      Need some more KO's in the division, how many times does anyone want to see the same matches before the get very boring? I like all the girls currently working but for the sake of ratings and freshness I wouldnt shed a tear if half the girls were replaced with others, provided the others can wrestle and aren't ex divas..

        I was hoping that TNA would continue the Joey Ryan story as the KO ref. I would prefer ODB as an actual combatant in the ring, not the enforcer/ref.

    this show impact should be on at 9. maybe in the summer with less shows on during that time the rating be up, but i think this is speaking loud and clear that tna need to be on at 9

    Maybe if they aces & eights didn't interrupt 4 matches in two hours, then have a segment with joseph park in between, the ratings would be better. I totally understand the heel concept and whatnot, but it's obnoxious how much on air time they get. I'm tired of seeing every match end with a ref distraction followed by chain wrapped around fist shot. Oh, and also get some new X division stars considering you put all the good ones except Sonjay in the tag team division…
