Reports are surfacing around the interwebs suggesting that last week’s abysmal viewership for the Thanksgiving episode of iMPACT! may be slightly improved – thanks to DVRs.
Initial reports told us that last week’s episode of the show averaged about 1,262,000 viewers throughout the two hour episode. After including DVR viewership, though, it is being reported that last week’s episode averaged about 1,400,000 viewers. While the 138,000 viewer bump isn’t even close to the 200,000 bump that iMPACT!’s viewership normally receives after adding in DVRs, this lesser increase may be due to the holiday lag and folks not being home to watch the show.
Additionally, the Thanksgiving episode of ReAction increased its final audience from 681,000 viewers to 708,000 viewers after adding in those who watched the show on DVR.
