Last night's live episode of Impact Wrestling averaged 1.379 million viewers, according to TV By The Numbers. PWTorch reports that the final rating for the show was a 1.07.

Viewers were up a whopping 31% from last week's taped episode, which scored a 0.84 rating and averaged 1.05 million viewers.

For as long as I can remember, there has rarely been a notable difference in the ratings between a live show and a taped show. However, there have been massive swings in the past several weeks with the live shows doing much better than the taped episodes. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues, or if the last several weeks have been an anomaly.

PWTorch noted that it was the highest rated since the April 4th episode, which drew a 1.11 rating. You can get more demographics info about the rating at PWTorch by clicking here.
