Last week’s disastrous TNA iMPACT! rating undoubtedly played a part in the decision to move the Spike TV series back to Thursdays. And while that decision still appears to be in the brand’s best interest, it is worth noting that the rating climbed this week.
Monday’s iMPACT! moved up to a 0.8 cable household rating with 1.146 million viewers. Among adults 18-49, the show posted a 0.4.
Without the draft to boost interest, this week’s WWE RAW was down within its 9-11PM timeslot (its overall rating was basically equal to the number for last week’s three hour show). The show averaged a 3.03 cable rating, off hours of 2.9 and 3.2. Total viewership averaged out to 4.332 million, off hours of 4.081 million and 4.583 million.
RAW posted a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating off hours of 1.5 and 1.8.
— Elsewhere, from 8:13-10:54PM, the NBA Playoffs on TNT averaged a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating with 5.499 million viewers.
