Pop TV is moving the weekly Impact Wrestling television series to a later time slot beginning October 25, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com. Next week’s show will air at 7CT/8ET, and then the show will move to 9CT/10ET beginning the following week.
Powell’s POV: So an hour of Impact will air outside of primetime? Ouch. This obviously isn’t a positive sign for the company. I suppose it’s possible that Pop is moving the show because Impact has informed them that they will be leaving the network for a better television home once their current deal expires, but there has been no buzz whatsoever of that happening. A big part of this move would seem to be that Impact’s numbers have taken a big hit due in part to the NFL Thursday night games. I will have more to say about this development in my members’ exclusive audio review of the Impact Wrestling television show later today. For membership information, visit PWMembership.net.
