This week's Impact Wrestling simply performed horribly in the ratings. The show only garnered a 0.83 cable rating to go with its average viewership of 1,016,000 viewers on Spike TV.
The number was the lowest in three years, dating back to Impact's experimental run on Monday nights. The show was up against stiff competition with Game 5 of the NBA Playoffs game - Pacers at Heat - drawing 8,500,000 viewers and the History Channel drawing 4,800,000 in the same timeslot.
To TNA's credit, this was the first week back in the 9 PM/8 CT timeslot. However, there has to be a lot of disappointment headed into Slammiversary on Sunday.
