TNA Impact Wrestling drew 353,000 viewers last night on Pop TV, a big rebound from the 284,000 and 305,000 the previous two weeks. It returned to nearly the average viewership number of September, which was 359,200 and above the August average of 340,000.
Keller’s Analysis: Considering it went up against Major League Baseball playoffs, Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears, and the WNBA Finals deciding game, the sports competition was stronger than usual. Cody Rhodes getting a TNA World Hvt. Title shot against Eddie Edwards, the Hardys in a tag match, and Bobby Lashley vs. Moose was a pretty strong card, though, and perhaps that was the driver of increased viewership, especially the novelty of seeing Cody main event a TNA wrestling show.
