-- This week's edition of TNA iMPACT! drew a 1.13 (1.1) cable rating, with an average of 1.5 million viewers. That is about the same as last week. The show did a .9 M18-49, a .55 in M18-34. Quarter hour ratings still come.

-------------------
Well we all know dixie wanted push the young guys, and she cares about the ratings! Well they dropped again, looks like there going to get buried again for the WWE rejects and old guys! But will have to wait and see they already recorded next weeks iMpact, see if they change things up! I want more X matches damn it

It's kind of funny to me how Dixie, as well as most of the IWC, are under the impression that there's an absolutely finite correlation between the content of the shows and said shows' ratings. It sometimes seems as if outside factors are never even considered. Such a misguided and short-sighted approach to how she determines the direction of her company is going to lead to nothing but more water-treading, and that's unfortunate.

I'm just sayn what's been reported which could be crap! But we know Dixie could be like that! And most likely will bury the TNA guys we all know and love

i never see ROH spoilers online. but i don't watch ROH or Smackdown unless i read something good happens. but if TNA didn't tape so far ahead or went live i would watch it. but if i read stupid shit happening i won't watch.

they usually tape every two weeks it isn't too bad but it saves money on production rather than going live

u obviously dont know how networks work....do u see all thos commercials in between shows...welll lets just say if a show with a .3 rating charges for commercials a show with as 1.1 charges like 10x as more for that commercial to air and thats how networks make their money....thats why tna cares about the ratings bcuz the network can cancel them cuz they aint worth the air time to sale ad space...:)

Yeah the ratings are a big deal for the network. But do you really believe spike will cancel them?
I think they bring more than enough ratings for that channel.
The minute dixie stops worring about ratings, and put more attention to her product, will mark the begining of a tna growth
Besides ratings doesn't matter what they used to, most of the people just record the show and see's it without commercials

I never said that TNA doesn't care about ratings, you spectacular simpleton. If you were actually able to comprehend the things that you were reading, I wouldn't need to explain this to you:

As someone who works in television, I'm keenly aware of how the system works. What you're not getting, though, is that bumps in numbers can't be immediately construed as a sure-fire indicator of the direction that your company needs to go. TNA could put on a great show that's low on marquee value, and a low rating return would immediately lead them to believe that the lack of names is the sole problem, all the while completely ignoring outside factors such as an overall decrease in viewership across the board for ALL programming. A long-term quality gameplan needs to be conceived, initiated, and executed, as that's how significant viewership is gained and audiences are built. This week-to-week tinkering with pushing geezers back to the forefront every time the numbers dip will amount to a .1 bump or so in the short-term, yeah, but that's just a shoddy patch job that's not going to solve one single long term issue.

You shouldn't condescend people by calling them genius when you can't even spell it properly, Corky. It makes you look like, well, the complete opposite of a "genious".

Dixie worrying about ratings now would bring her down. TNA needs serious work then focus on ratings.

speaking of Hardy I wonder if he is dumb enough to take credit for this because from what Iv'e seen from him(youtube and twitter)no publicity is bad publicity.

Then he will try to do something stupid to get out of his TNA contract. But TNA will think that it is edgy, which they like, and so they will give Hardy a huge push, and make him world champion.
