SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Ring of Honor finished its run on Destination America with an average-sized audience last Wednesday. TNA Impact also rebounded to about their average on Dest. America.
Wednesday Night ROH/TNA Programming – November 25 (Week 26)
– TNA Impact: The first airing at 9:00 p.m. EST drew 234,000 viewers, up from a timeslot-low of 202,000 viewers last week.
TNA’s late-night replay/West Coast airing after ROH then drew 76,000 viewers, slightly down from 78,000 viewers last week despite ROH having a larger audience.
TNA Impact’s total viewership was 310,000 viewers, up from 280,000 combined viewers last week.
– ROH TV: The only airing at 11:00 p.m. EST drew 141,000 viewers, rebounding from 114,000 viewers last week.
This was the final episode on Destination America. (Final Tally of Viewership)
– TNA at 9:00 EST: 234,000 viewers
– ROH at 11:00 EST: 141,000 viewers
– TNA at midnight: 76,000 viewers
Both shows drew an older audience. ROH’s median age was 56.0 years-old, while TNA’s was 53.7 years-old.
Comparatively, the programming on TNA’s future home, Pop TV, drew a median age viewer of 49.8 years-old during the same timeslot.
TNA’s demographic split was 67 percent males 18-49 and 33 percent females 18-49. The Pop programming was the opposite with 28 percent m18-49 and 72 percent f18-49.
It points to the challenge of TNA moving to a female-centric cable network when TNA struggled to draw female viewers previously on Spike TV and then this year on Dest. America.
