-- Eric Bischoff is supposed to show up in Orlando for this week's slate of iMPACT! tapings, but as of yesterday, TNA officials weren't sure of his intentions. Many feel that if he works this week's television tapings, it would show interest on the part of Hogan's camp in the organization. However, if the former Vice President of World Championship Wrestling isn't present this week, they doubt Hogan will ever show up in TNA.
-- TNA officials are said to be disappointed over the cable rating for Hulk Hogan's debut on last week's episode of iMPACT!, which actually scored a 1.2 rather than a 1.3 (rounded down from 1.24). Company brass were expecting a much higher number for the TNA debut of the wrestling legend. Viewers tuned out as the show progressed with the first hour averaging a 1.26 rating and the second hour averaging a 1.21 rating. Viewership was way up in the males 18-49 and 19-34 demos, scoring a 1.10 and 1.06, respectively. Both were the show's highest ratings since March 19, 2009. Keep in mind though that the show went up against the World Series, NBA Game, and college football game.
