This Week's TNA IMPACT! Rating + EVOLVE Headed To I-PPV
-- This week's TNA iMPACT! (3/24) drew a 1.22 cable rating, with 1.7 million viewers. This is down slightly from last week's show which drew a 1.27 (1.3) cable rating, with 1.8 million viewers. This week's hours were 1.19 (1.2) and 1.26 (1.3). This is also the second consecutive week that the second hour of the show drew higher ratings than the first hour which is a good trend. The second hour of iMPACT! also went head-to-head with The Jersey Shore season finale as well as the NCAA tournament. Tonight's WWE SmackDown! faces the same NCAA competition.
-- No word yet on the WWE Superstars rating.
-- WWE has filmed a skit with Roddy Piper, The Miz and Cousin Sal for the Jimmy Kimmel show. The skit is a promotional package for WWE All-Stars and will air on the opening of the show on Tuesday.
-- All EVOLVE events from this point forward will air on i-PPV. This will start on April 19th in Manhattan. That show is headlined by Chuck Taylor vs. Akira Tozawa and Jigsaw & Frightmare vs. Facade & Jason Gory.
