    TNA Rating Issues

    Hey y'all. every week when I see the Impact rating and how it dips and peaks at quite a low mark it makes me think what what are they doing wrong. I mean the shows have been stellar since the summer. Many people used to say because its taped, they changed it to live and its seemed to get worse. Others say its because they don't go on the road and to a degree that is true and if they went on the road would that change the ratings? the answer is maybe only slightly.

    The main problem TNA has imo is their day and time slot. Moving to 8pm was a huge mistake, they were doing better in the 9pm slot. What TNA needs to do is look at the ratings of all channels during the entire week and pick a day and a prime time slot that is pretty much empty of quality programming and see if spike will let them have it. I'm sure you guys in the states would know what slot TNA would do better in. Here in the UK TNA does well, and granted it is because it is on freeveiw, but with being on a Sunday at 9pm that slot is pretty much dead imo. The PPV's are shown on a Wednesday at 10pm which is a decent slot, only downside to it is that Challenge shows adverts which extends the PPV to 4hours so ending at 2am may hurt it to a degree.

    What do you guys reckon?

    Their shows aren´t good anymore. They were really good from May till July and from then the quality gradually began to decline.

    But it is actually really simple. Something isn´t clicking.
    I suppose it´s the Aces and 8´s angle, since that´s the hardest pushed angle on the show.
    It could also be that Aries wasn´t clicking with the TV audience. Although you would think that ratings would increase now with Hardy as champion, so we have to wait a few weeks for that to be determined.

    Good for TNA! Hopefully they give our friends in the UK a PPV.

    Lockdown 2013 in the UK would be insane.

    We in the UK are starved of wrestling. if TNA or WWE for that matter did one of their major PPV's over here it would be an insane turnout. Only problem is the time difference, buy rates would suffer in the states. That's their major concern.

    Many people stream TNA's PPVs anyway so I don't think it would hurt them very much. Not to mention, if is a great show, maybe people will buy it to see the greatness.

    I just love seeing how crazy you guys get. Those Impacts in the UK were great, I can't imagine the intensity for a PPV.

    If you are selling good in other countries its really huge for TNA.TNA is doing a great job paying more attention in other countries like UK and India.I disagree with Auto that the shows are not good anymore.The impact before BFG was really good and this week ratings are up.But its not only TNA having issues with the ratings, wwe has problems too.Maybe US is not that interest in wrestling anymore

    My points is that in USA ratings are a worry but they are doing really well in other countries

    Yeah I know, they are a US based company and their biggest concern is ratings in the US. The problem is the US is so over exposed to wresting that it's popularity is in a downfall. Where in other countries who are so starved of wrestling that its popularity is still quite high.
