Thursday’s Impact Wrestling television drew 309,000 total viewers on Pop TV, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The number was up from the 276,000 viewers the show accumulated the previous week.
Powell’s POV: It’s good to see the number top the 300,000 mark. It will be interesting to see if there’s any fallout from Impact using substantial time on this show to drive viewers to Twitch to see the main event, which did not air on Pop TV. Impact also hyped the Genesis theme for next week so it’s possible that the pay-per-view theme could help them too. Last year, TNA Impact Wrestling produced 310,000 viewers viewers on the Thursday, January 19 edition.
