Powell's POV: Not a single quarter-hour topping the 1.0 mark has to be alarming to TNA and Spike TV. The company is changing back to the later time slot later this month and at one point they were doing much stronger numbers in the second hour, so logic would seem to suggest that the overall rating would improve once they move back to the later slot. The second hour number was still better than the first for this show, but the slip to an 0.872 rating for the second hour is just plain awful regardless of competition.
