Impact Wrestling Moving Back To 9-11PM Timeslot On Spike TV

Dixie Carter announced Wednesday on Twitter that Impact Wrestling is moving back to its 9-11 PM ET timeslot on Spike TV. The following is from her verified Twitter account:

The news comes after the show drew its lowest audience of the year (with an average viewing audience 1,104,000 viewers) last week. Oddly enough, it was the first Impact of the month of May in 2010 (when Impact was airing on Monday nights) when the company reverted back to Thursday nights after drawing an average viewing audience of 1,100,000 viewers on May 3, 2010.

I really crunched some numbers in the latest WNW Premium Mailbag.

  • That’ll make it to where they are no longer competing against Big Bang Therory to start the show, and will hopefully boost their numbers a bit.

    Their numbers, even at their best, aren’t good. The all-time high 1.4 they drew when Hogan debuted isn’t phenomenal. That’s about what WWE’s ECW was doing before it was cancelled. No time slot move is going to fix it. Their issues are about promotion.

    Problem is we are seeing too many old WWE names and old names in general. All respect to guys like Kurt Angle and Sting, but we need to see younger names. Aces and Eights was a bomb it took too long for reveal all the members and took away from the angle. The backstage skits look corny and Hogan dominates when he doesn’t need to.
