Last night’s edition of TNA Impact featuring Dixie Carter’s speech averaged a 1.08 rating, which was down 13.1 percent from the previous week’s 1.24 rating featuring the Hulk Hogan announcement.
Looking back to the October 22 Impact from two weeks ago, which was before the Hogan announcement, that show averaged a 1.10 rating. Last night’s show lost 13.1 percent of the Hogan audience and was also below the audience level from the show before Hogan.
The first hour of last night’s show averaged a 1.07 rating. It started with a strong 1.10 first quarter-hour rating for Dixie Carter’s speech and the A.J. Styles-Daniels confrontation, but dropped clear down to a 0.98 for the second quarter-hour.
The second hour averaged a 1.08 rating, but peaked at the very beginning of the hour with a 1.16 fifth quarter-hour rating. The show failed to draw more viewers after the first 15 minutes of the second hour.
The final quarter-hour dropped to a 1.05 rating, reflecting the show not having a clear main event announced and built up over the course of two hours that would get viewers excited to see a definitive conclusion to the episode.
