Impact ratings remain mostly even coming off Thanksgiving episode

Coming off their Thanksgiving episode, Impact Wrestling ratings held fairly steady last week.

Last Thursday's episode of Impact averaged 122,000 viewers on Pop TV, down slightly from 124,000 for the Thanksgiving night show. The rating in the 18-49 demo stayed at a 0.03.

Since moving time slots to 10 p.m. Eastern time, Impact's viewership numbers have been: 98,000, 105,000, 129,000, 101,000, 124,000, and 122,000.

Last week's Impact featured Eli Drake defeating Tommy Dreamer in a no disqualification match, the in-ring debut of the Rascalz as a team, Taya Valkyrie defeating Ray Lyn, Jordynne Grace getting another win against Katarina, and Pentagon Jr. & Fenix defeating Rich Swann & Willie Mack.

Ratings for last week's episode were delayed due to Impact falling outside of the top 150 on cable for the night and those numbers not being made available until today. Thursday Night Football posted a huge number, with the Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints game averaging more than 24 million combined viewers on Fox and the NFL Network.
