The 6/22 edition of TNA iMPACT! drew a final 1.1 cable rating.

Some are saying that this was the first week Impact did not have the UFC Ultimate Fighter 3 lead-in, so that this number was drawn completely by TNA and therefore very impressive. However, this is incorrect. Last week's episode of Ultimate Fighter 3 was replayed before Impact this week, so TNA did have the ever precious UFC lead-in.
