As far as the rating for this week’s edition of iMPACT! is concerned, TNA had a chance to beat ECW’s 100th show (which drew a 1.08 rating), but were not even close. The show tied its worst number in a while with a 0.9 rating (with an average viewership of 1.2 million viewers). The lone bright spot of the show was with the ladies as their pole match drew a 1.06 rating. The show opened with a 0.96 quarter, but dropped to a show-low rating of 0.85 during quarter two, which featured a slew of X Division wrestlers such as Johnny Devine, Shark Boy and Jimmy Rave. With the exception of the ladies the match & the first segment, the ratings for the show ranged from 0.85 to 0.88 for the other quarters.
TNA has hired Steve Allison as their Chief Marketing Officer. Allison was a major executive for Midway Games, but the company is not doing too well and he left his position. Midway Games lost $34 million during their fiscal first quarter of 2008.
