DirecTV dropping Spike TV had a major affect on this week's Impact Wrestling rating. This week's episode only scored a 0.85 rating with 1.108 million viewers.

That is way down from last week's episode, which garnered a 1.00 rating and 1.485 million viewers.

As noted earlier, reports that a resolution between DirecTV and Viacom is not expected to happen anytime soon as the two companies are still far apart on terms for a new deal.
