iMPACT Wrestling Ratings (9/29):  Final Ratings Increase While Viewership Sees Very Small Dip

Source: TNAStars.com

The final cable rating and viewership estimates for last week’s episode of iMPACT Wrestling on Spike TV are now available. The numbers show that last week’s show was one of those episodes that generated a weird anomaly in terms of week-to-week statistical comparisons as the final ratings number increased while total viewership remained relatively stagnant, but did decrease slightly from the prior week. Last week’s episode of the show scored a final cable rating of 1.14 which represented about 1,490,000 viewers over the course of the show’s two hours.

Last week’s final rating is 0.06 of a point higher, but approximately 34,000 less viewers than prior week’s episode, which scored a final cable rating of 1.08 with an average audience of 1,524,000 viewers.

When we know more about how last night’s show scored during the first and second hours, we’ll report it right here – so check back on Monday! Last week’s episode of iMPACT Wrestling on Spike TV had more total viewers than prime time and late night programming on other cable channels with a national audience including FX, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, TLC, the Food Network, Discovery, ESPN, TBS, History, and A&E – among others.

It is also worth noting that the show’s total viewership is hard to estimate. This is because DVR+3 figures (the amount of people who watch the show on their DVR within three days of recording it) usually adds about 200,000 more viewers in addition to the viewership number reported above. Plus, Spike.com uploads each full episode of iMPACT Wrestling to its website for free online streaming for a three month period. The online streaming versions of the show typically generate about 20,000 views before they are taken down (some episodes have many more viewers, others have less). However, there is no way to know whether or not DVR or online viewers are part of the original viewership estimate, so these figures are rarely reported by wrestling websites (but they’re still good to know!).

If you’re interested in iMPACT Wrestling’s ratings performance for 2010 and 2011, then check out TNAStars.com’s Ratings War area. In the Ratings War area you can see a comparison of iMPACT Wrestling vs. Monday Night RAW from the spring of 2010 and iMPACT Wrestling vs. Superstars from all of 2010 and the first part of 2011. Also, you can see a comparison of iMPACT Wrestling’s viewership numbers from week-to-week in 2011. Enjoy!

    Hey – just thought I’d update everyone that this ratings report was posted later than usual because I was in Atlantic City for my older brother’s bachelor party. Next week’s report should be back on schedule and posted on Friday afternoon!
