Last night's episode of Impact Wrestling averaged 1.421 million viewers, according to TV By The Numbers. While viewership was down from recent weeks, and down 4% from last week, it still beats most of their numbers from 2013.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio this week that part of the reason for the recent ratings increase is because Cops, which is the lead-in for Impact, has been drawing big numbers. Meltzer added that because of the lead in, the show has been starting off with a big number, and then dropping throughout the rest of the show.
