  2. Disappointing
  3. It's a little down, but the truth has to be say, it wasn't one of the best shows, I love TNA but this week's show wasn't as good as last week one
  4. This week's show was one of the best in months IMO, it looks like people just don't want to tune in to whole show, but rather to Q5 and Q8.
  5. Seems like they timed AJ's return perfectly then, hopefully people see him laying out faces and heels and get into him.
  6. Isn't it still in the 8pm timeslot in US?
  7. Yeah it's on it at 8pm
  8. They'd benefit going back to 9 imo. These ratings sort of back that theory, though I don't know how consistent the second half increase is though.
  9. Is anything consistent in TNA's ratings lol? I'm not sure what big shows they go against in the 2 spots, also people may not know they moved to 8 which goes back to the age old problem of advertising.
  10. #RollerCoasterRatings still lives on.
  11. They still have to deal with the Big Bang Theory at 8. Different demographic but you still don't want to compete with a show that gets that number of viewers when you don't have to.

    Anyway, remember when the Knockouts used to draw?
  12. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, that won't happen anytime soon. Two simple reasons for it:

    1) TNA is on the road now, so live taping beggining at 9pm would be too late for the 2nd (taped) show to be taped

    2) Freakin stupid Bellator begins after Impact, and they wouldn't benefit if their start time is 11pm

    So, unfortunately, not anytime soon.

    As far as consistency in ratings go, only Q2 and Q5 are that. Always the lowest rated quarter, and (almost) always the highest rated quarter.
  13. How big is bellator?
  14. Not much, and they get around 750k viewers weekly, which is half of Impact audience, aka - embarrassing for "lets fight, this is real" vanilla midgets.
  15. I know, but it wasn't the best of this month IMO
  16. Kind of sucks because this was one of the better shows.
