Thursday night’s episode of TNA iMPACT on Spike drew a 1.1 cable rating. This is slightly down from last week’s 1.2 rating. The highest rated segment featured the ending of the Awesome Kong & Raisha Saeed vs. Taylor Wilde & Rhaka Khan match, and the entire interview segment where Mike Tenay and Sheik Abdul Bashir got heated. The rating first picked up for the women’s tag match, so that appears to be the cause of the rating increase.
The main event between Samoa Joe and Scott Steiner scored a 1.11 rating, managing to keep the majority of viewers tuned in. TNA had been having major problems with keeping viewers tuned in for main events in the past.
