All In “Zero Hour” viewership number

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

The All In “Zero Hour” special that aired Saturday on WGN America delivered 196,000 viewers, according to

Powell’s POV: The show had fewer viewers than an average edition of Impact Wrestling on Pop TV. I can’t say I’m surprised given that this was presented as a one-off special and it was held on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. While the number may not set the world on fire, it will be interesting to see if WGN America executives feel its strong enough to justify airing more pro wrestling programming. Meanwhile, the big question is how many fans ordered the pay-per-view event and unfortunately that information is not available at this time.

    How about the millions that don’t watch TV anymore. We view online
    anytime we want & NO COMMERCIALS.

  2. Supposedly they are airing more this month.
    “Add a new professional wrestling show to the television mix — Ring Warriors will air on WGN America starting in September.
    The promotion announced tonight it’ll begin airing a one-hour show on September 15. They’ll have a Saturday morning time slot at 8 a.m. ET.
    Television tapings will take place August 8 and 9 at Sam’s Town Casino in Las Vegas. The shows will feature Austin Aries, Eli Drake, Jeff Cobb, Marty the Moth, Wes Brisco, Alex Chamberlain, Chase Stevens, Cassidy Riley, and others.
    Those shows will include a tournament to crowd a new Ring Warriors Grand Champion.
    The Ring Warriors promotion has come and gone since the 1990s. It’s currently run by former NWA President Howard Brody.”

  3. Seems to me, that’s pretty damn good. It aired at 6pm on a Saturday on Labor Day weekend. A freaking pre-show. Featuring no household names. It beat established Impact’s rating from a couple weeks ago. Was WGN’s highest rated show.
