Impact Wrestling posts best ratings since time slot change


This week's episode of Impact drew the promotion's best ratings since changing time slots.

Thursday's Impact averaged 140,000 viewers on Pop TV, up 20 percent from last week's 116,000. The rating in the 18-49 demo ticked up to a 0.05.

Impact has now drawn 98,000, 105,000, 129,000, 101,000, 124,000, 122,000, 116,000, and 140,000 viewers in the weeks since changing time slots to starting at 10 p.m. Eastern time. In the old time slot, the previous low mark for 2018 was 168,000 viewers.

The build to January's Homecoming pay-per-view continued on this week's Impact. Moose defeated Brian Cage by disqualification in the main event, with Eddie Edwards interfering and attacking Moose. Tessa Blanchard and Taya Valkyrie had a face-to-face segment ahead of their Knockouts Championship match at Homecoming, Fenix defeated Santana, and Rich Swann and Trey Miguel won Ultimate X qualifying matches.

Thursday Night Football ratings were up big for this week's Los Angeles Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs matchup. The game drew over 20 million combined viewers on Fox and the NFL Network.

The last two Impacts of this year will be Best of 2018 episodes.
