TNA iMPACT acheived a record 1.34 overall cable rating, and a iMPACT record 1.21 Men 18-49 (#2 for Thursday All Day), so 3 out of the last 5 weeks TNA has earned over a 1.3 rating, 1.29 another week and only dropped off last week to a 1.2.
ECW just barely beat iMPACT with a 1.35 rating this week
Quarter hour breakdowns:
Once again TNA promoted a Main Event throughout the show then deliver it, rather than TALKING in the Main, and acheived good audience "flow" . Next step is using the same technique to promote matches that involve folk other than Sting, Jarrett, Foley & Angle as good build up can benefit other match options too, and in the process build more stars. The stars help draw, but it’s the build throughout a show that really draws & keeps the audience.
