Impact Wrestling viewership drops below the 100,000 mark in the later time slot

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Thursday’s Impact Wrestling television drew 98,000 total viewers on Pop TV, according to The number was down from the 189,000 viewers the show accumulated the previous week.

Powell’s POV: Obviously, the show bombed in the new time slot. It’s worth noting that the NFL game went to halftime on Fox just about the time that Impact was started. Last year, Impact Wrestling produced 231,000 viewers for the October 26 edition.

    It’s time to get rid of this guy Don Callis. Clearly, people are not liking HIS show. Clearly, he’s out of the loop which is not surprising since he did take a 12 year sabbatical away from the business. What more does Ed Nordholm need to see? I actually thought moving the timeslot would have helped.

    Why Ed Nordholm waiting so long? Pretty soon Impact will be left with 98 viewers.

    That’s all I have to say.

  2. What was the rating for whatever aired 8 – 10 on POP? Does it indicate this bombed for Pop as well as Impact?

    Also, I expect more DVR viewership with the new timeslot. Can that be reported on when the data is available?

    Only with these facts will we know the true implications of the timeslot change.

  3. fire Scott DMorie.

    He’s out of touch and thinks that the old days of TNA didn’t create their awful reputation

    • Between 1 and 2 million people used to watch the old days of TNA. Whilst wrestling purists may have hated it, more people enjoyed it than they enjoy the current product.
