TNA Impact Wrestling last night drew 299,000 viewers, once again dipping below the 300,000 number for the third time out of five weeks in 2017. The high point, two weeks ago, drew 310,000 viewers.
The January average was 296,000. The fall average was 325,000.
Keller’s Analysis: There is some serious lost momentum after the hodgepodge of compilation shows and off-beat formats over the holidays as the ownership situation was transitioning and there was a lack of fresh new footage. While Raw and Smackdown ratings are up this January compared to September through December 2016, Impact is down. Only once did Impact surpass 400,000 viewers in the 56 weeks it’s been on Pop TV, back on July 5, 2016. The Pop TV president had boasted they’d get back to 1 million viewers, and the show is moving the wrong direction if that’s the goal. That said, Impact remains on the higher end of Pop TV viewership numbers.
