TNA Impact segment bombs in the ratings

 sources: Wrestling Observer Newsletter,

-- Last week's Consequences Creed vs. Sheik Abdul Bashir match on Impact lost an astounding 340,000 viewers, which is the biggest viewership loss of the year, if not in Impact ratings history. Following the segment were interviews with Kevin Nash, Beer Money and The Beautiful People, which lost 95,000 viewers. Beer Money vs. Shark Boy & Super Eric gained 109,000 viewers. The Abyss vs. Johnny Devine match gained 150,000 additional viewers. The ODB vs. Raisha Saeed match lost 163,000 viewers. The AJ Styles vs. Christian Cage match gained 109,000 viewers. A Sting promo closing the show gained 82,000 viewers and did a 1.10 rating. Overall, the show drew a 1.03 cable rating and 1.4 million viewers going up against the NFL season opener. The show did a 0.77 rating in both Males 18-34 and Males 35-49 demos.

to be honest im not liking Abdul Bashir that much in TNA. i would much rather it be a feud just between Creed and Petey.

but yeah pretty big drop there. but overall going up against the NFl not a bad rating compared to TNA standards.

lol Super Eric draws just as much as Styles and Cage. They need to drop the stupid shit with him and give him a proper push.

And bringing in Davairi was ****ing stupid. Remember how they wrote off Muhhamed Hassan and him because people were complaining it was too offensive? Smart move TNA.

Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

Actually the move is smart, Hassan was uber over, the reason that he got dropped was because the wwe was forced to, he was soo over that he would of been world champ by now IMO
