This week’s episode of TNA iMPACT did a 1.9 cable rating, up from last week’s 1.5. Both are rounded up to a 2.0, and both did about the same amount of viewers.
While WWE’s programming suffered viewership losses this week, TNA stayed steady and topped ECW on Sci-Fi — that’s the good news. The bad news is in the quarter-hour ratings: TNA booked a PPV-caliber main event on free TV and it was the lowest-rated segment of the show. Here is the complete quarter-hour rating breakdown:
Q1: 1.07 (Main Event Mafia in the ring)
Q2: 1.20 (Suicide vs. Consequences Creed; Morgan/Foley backstage)
Q3: 1.27 (M.E.M. interview; Matt Morgan vs. M.E.M. security)
Q4: 1.23 (Foley backstage; Beer Money vs. Young/Holiday)
Q5: 1.19 (Awesome Kong vs. Velvet Sky)
Q6: 1.22 (Dr. Stevie; Lethal/Creed/Daniels in-ring segment)
Q7: 1.19 (Main Event Mafia vs. Frontline 10-man tag)
Q8: 1.16 (10-man tag cont.; Sting’s announcement)
Matt Morgan squashing the Main Event Mafia’s security guards drew the highest rating of the evening. Also, Scott Steiner has been in the highest-rated quarter-hours of iMPACT for 4 of the 5 last weeks.
