Eric Bischoff continues his ranting toward the Internet Wrestling Community, this time in response to the recent ratings breakdown for last week’s addition of Impact Wrestling. Last week’s show lost upwards of 300,000 viewers overall from the previous week. Those within TNA believe Game 2 of the NBA Finals was a big part of the reason while some wrestling critics weren’t willing to give the game much credit for the loss in viewers.
On Eric Bischoff’s Facebook page yesterday, he posted the following: "What the 10%’ers and the dirtsites that feed them don’t want to report: Per Spike TV, Impact Wrestling was the #1 cable show in its time period among M18-49 despite under-delivering its STD average among key demos and TNA increased from its Jail (rpt) lead-in by +129% in M18-49 (.78), with an additional +6% gain in the following quarter hour. TNA peaked in the 10:15p quarter with a .99 in M18-49."
He furthered explained his opinions toward the IWC, this past week’s Impact Wrestling rating and much more on the latest episode of the Monday Night Mayhem radio show. During his segment on the show, he pointed out the fact that Impact Wrestling is Spike TV’s number one rated show each week and that they "outperform the UFC".
