All In: Zero Hour draws nearly 200,000 viewers on WGN America


Saturday's All In: Zero Hour broadcast, which aired on WGN America at 6 p.m. Eastern time before the All In main card started on pay-per-view, Fite TV, and HonorClub, averaged 196,000 viewers.

It's difficult to say what this means other than that it was the highest rated show on that station on that day. It fell almost exactly in between what a typical Impact episode on Pop TV and a Lucha Underground episode on the El Rey Network would do, but both of those shows air in prime time. Last week's Impact drew 225,000 viewers, and their lowest total for the year is 168,000.

Zero Hour averaged a 0.08 rating in the important 18-49 demo and finished 85th for the day in that demo on all of cable TV.

The Zero Hour portion of All In featured the Over Budget Battle Royale -- which was won by Flip Gordon as he advanced to challenge for Jay Lethal's ROH World Championship later in the night -- and The Briscoes vs. Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky.

Saturday was also the kickoff for the college football season. Games airing on ESPN, FOX, CBS, and ABC averaged a combined 10 million viewers airing directly opposite Zero Hour.

Due to the Labor Day holiday, ratings for this week have been delayed. WWE Raw ratings won't be available until this afternoon, and SmackDown's will be available tomorrow morning.
