Guess what, it was a PROMOTED episode. Good job.
Can't argue with those results, maybe they'll get the message this time.
This year thus far, good job ratings wise.
Already better than last whole year.
Does it seem like every time they have a bad episode of IMPACT that's the one they do good on ratings?
Anyways they did a good job promoting the wedding as said.
Promotion is everything in a business, no surprise there. Stuff like that draws viewers.
Q1: 1.16 rating - Bully Ray backstage with Tommy Dreamer and Brother Runt, Brooke Hogan with Knockouts as bridesmaids, Jeff Hardy promo interrupted by Christopher Daniels and Kazarian, James Storm saves Hardy from attack
Q2: 1.02 rating - Hardy and Storm vs. Daniels and Kazarian, Joseph Park gives Bully Ray a gift
Q3: 1.07 rating - Gut Check judging with Jay Bradley, Brian Cage, Taz, Al Snow, Bruce Prichard, and Jeremy Borash, Kenny King vs. Christian York, two commercial breaks
Q4: 1.04 rating - King vs. York continuation, Bully Ray asks Sting to talk with Hulk Hogan, Taz heads backstage, Austin Aries and Bobby Roode talk backstage, Hulk Hogan arrives
Q5: 1.24 rating - Taz backstage with Ray, Runt, and Dreamer, Sting and Hogan in the ring for a verbal segment, Gail Kim and Taryn Terrell backstage, Bully Ray's bachelor party footage
Q6: 1.23 rating - Gail Kim vs. Velvet Sky with Terrell as referee, Brooke Hogan with her surrogate mother Dixie Carter,
Q7: 1.19 rating - Bobby Roode and Austin Aries promo interrupted by Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez, Bully Ray and his groomsmen out
Q8: 1.34 rating - Brooke Hogan out and escorted down the aisle by Hulk Hogan, Brooke and Bully wedding interrupted by Taz and an Aces & 8's attack
Not for nothing, but Taz heading backstage led to the greatest increase in the entire show in the following quarter.
Still, highest rated segment was the marriage, no surprise there. Promotion leading to ratings.
Also, Q8 averaged 1.8 million viewers, while the whole episode averaged 1.6 million and a 1.16 rating.
Awesome stuff. Just wish TNA would realize the power of promoting.
