– Due to the BDSSP being carried in regional Fox Sports Network affiliates across the country, the ratings take a little longer to tally. With that being said, early reports are indicating more than a doubling of the usualy BDSSP ratings. Final numbers indicate a much more modest increase, with ratings of 0.26 and 0.17, which is above the average 0.15 ratings for the show, although it is not enough to cause excitement among FSN executives. This is considered a setback for TNA’s attempt to gain prime time Monday night clearance on FSN.
– Buyrates for the Victory Road PPV remain relatively reassuring. Estimates suggest numbers between 30,000-40,000, which is significantly higher than the 20-25,000 previously suggested.
